California's congressional hopefuls have been busy building their campaign bank accounts ahead of the 2012 elections.
Reports tallying how much cash flowed in and out of the accounts during the most recent fundraising period, which ended Sept. 30, were due over the weekend. We've created a spreadsheet of the totals reported by campaign committees for incumbents and others planning to run on next year's ballot to aid our alert readers keeping track of the bottom line.
The campaign filings also shed light on the impact Democratic treasurer Kinde Durkee's alleged embezzlement scheme has had on some of her clients' funds.
Filings for U.S. Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein, whose full report has yet to be posted on the Federal Elections Commission's website, noted $4.7 million in losses, according to the Associated Press. Feinstein, who is up for re-election next year, has replaced those funds for now with $5 million of her own money. Filings by Reps. Linda and Loretta Sanchez and Susan Davis, all fellow Durkee clients, also disclosed six-figure losses in their campaign filings, the AP reported.
Durkee, who was arrested last month, has been accused by federal investigators and clients of stealing millions of dollars from accounts she managed.
