Delhey cites vote law violators
By JACK KROST
County Prosecutor William Delhey yes-
terday cited Mayor James Stephenson
and 41 other local ex-candidates for fail-
ure to file detailed lists of campaign con-
tributors as specified in the Fair Elec-
Also named as potential election law of-
fenders were State Rep. Perry Bullard
(D-Ann Arbor), Washtenaw County Sher-
iff Fred Postill, GOP Congressman Mar-
vin Esch, City Council members Carol
Jones (D-Second Ward) and Norris Thom-
as (D-First Ward), and County Com-
missioners Elizabeth Taylor and Kath-
leen Fojtik, both Democrats.
IN A MEETING yesterday with repre-
sentatives of Washtenaw County's four
political parties, Delhey listed 57 instances
of improper filing by candidates in the last
four local elections, starting with the Au-
gust 1972 primary races.
The list included 34 possible offenses by
Democratic candidates, 19 by Republi-
cans, 2 by Human Rights Party members,
and one by American Independent Party
sheriff candidate Douglas Harvey.
Delhey gave the 42 candidates until Sep-
tember 6 to "clarify" their lists of con-
tributors. The elections act carries a pen-
alty of up to five years in jail and/or a
THE ACT stipulates that office-seekers
must file returns specifically listing con-
tributions, sources, and the amounts con-
But Delhey did not specify what action
would be taken if the candidates failed to .
file proper lists of contributions and con-
tributors by the deadline, saying only,
"We'll have to cross that bridge when we
come to it."
The prosecutor said many of the candi-
dates had filed overly ambiguous returns,
listing non-political organizations with no
members named, or crediting "miscel-
laneous" or "anonymous" sources, a- di-
rect violation of the election law
BUT DELHEY stressed that in his opin-
ion, the offenders had not acted out of
"It would appear that the people who
didn't file, or didn't file properly, did it
because of ignorance or stupidity," he said
He further explained that he was not
issuing an ultimatum, to tha four politi-
cal parties' representatives, noting, "1'm
not on a witch-hunting expedition."
