Hans Tanzler to delay CD 4 financial disclosure as long as legally possible

Hans Tanzler, one of many Republican candidates vying to succeed Ander Crenshaw in Florida’s 4th Congressional District, will file his financial disclosure form on July 29, the latest date allowed by law, after having been approved for an extension from the Ethics Committee of the U.S. House of Representatives.

By that time, overseas absentee voters will already be voting; the disclosure, delayed until just 30 days before the Aug. 30 primary, will not be available to help inform their decisions.

Supervisors of elections must mail absentee ballots to military and overseas citizens no later than 45 days before each election, as per state law.

Tanzler has already had a television ad this campaign season.

Rawhide,” a 30-second spot filmed outside of CD 4, which shows Tanzler on horseback with a rifle by his side, was part of what was called a “sustained ad buy for the duration” of the campaign.

We have reached out to Tanzler consultant Brett Doster for explanation of the delayed financial disclosure form.

That explanation should address speculation around the late filing, which includes suggestions that Tanzler’s assets aren’t what is generally thought, as well as suggestions he wants to shield the extent of his wealth from CD 4 voters.

Check back for updates.
