More Problems With SOS Site
The Colorado Secretary of State’s (SOS) website, where members of the public go to look up political contributions and expenditures, is still displaying incorrect information.
In October, Colorado Confidential wrote on inaccuracies in what two Republican committees had reported, and what was presented for public consumption on the SOS website.
An SOS spokesman said that a “technical problem” was preventing the newly disclosed financial information from being shown.
And the problem is still ongoing. According to raw spreadsheets on the SOS site, there were over two hundred contributions to the Colorado Leadership Fund Political Committee in November.
But you wouldn’t know that by looking at the SOS database, where financial information is commonly displayed. The last contribution the database reports was in early August.
Because of this, a visitor would have to search through lines of spreadsheet data to know that high profile lobbying firms like Phaseline Strategies and Intermountain Corporate Affairs had given money to the Republican committee after the election.
It is unknown at this point how much information is going unreported in the SOS database, and whether this is also happening because of technical errors.
