SLTrib: Gingrich filing fee check bounced, may not be on Utah primary ballot…

Whoops - Salt Lake Tribune columnist Paul Rolly reports that Newt Gingrich's check for the $500 filing fee for the June 26 Utah presidential primary election bounced, and he may not be on the ballot as a result. “Utah Elections Director Mark Thomas said a designated agent for the Gingrich campaign brought the filing papers and a check for $500 in March, but the state was notified by the bank that the check had bounced,” Rolly reports. “He said the office has tried to contact the Gingrich campaign through the telephone number and email provided on the application, but has not received a response. Recently, the state sent a certified letter to the campaign, stating that if the fee isn’t paid by April 20, Gingrich will be disqualified and will not be on the ballot.” You can read his full column here.
