Blake Moore missed a deadline for listing … again
For the second time this year, Rep. Blake Moore missed a statutory deadline for reporting stock deals.
Inside reports Moore was made aware of three stock option deals on his behalf in mid-August. But Moore didn’t file the business disclosure until September 24, which was several days past the legal deadline.
This is the second time this year Moore has missed a state deadline for reporting trades. In July, Moore failed to disclose more than 70 trades valued between $ 700,000 and $ 1.1 million. The House of Representatives Ethics Committee fined Moore for prior late filing.
