On May 15, 2015 Former failed United States Senate Candidate John D King filed an appointment of Political Treasurer form with the Knox Co. Election Commission, he appointed Leon Spencer of Maynardville, TN as his Treasurer. On July 14, 2015, they filed a Campaign Finance Disclosure for Knox Co. Commission Sixth District Republican Primary 3/1/2016. King did not submit a petition to be a candidate for Sixth District Knox Co. Commission. However, until he files a campaign finance disclosure closing out his account, it is my understanding of the law that he and his Treasurer are required to continue filing timely disclosures.
The July 14, 2015 disclosure reported that he had raised $6,632, spent $6,169.83 for a balance on hand of $462.17. He does show a $3,675.00 loan outstanding (the loan was a $4,000 to his campaign from himself and he did make a $325 loan payment to himself) and $328.23 in obligations outstanding, the obligation is to The Hat Man for printing products.
