Death of Hillsborough GOP member from COVID-19 causes financial problems for party

The Hillsborough County Republican Party alerted federal election regulators Tuesday that it may file its monthly campaign finance reports late because a key member of the organization died Saturday from COVID-19.

Prior to his death, Gregg Prentice developed and maintained software that electronically tracked donations to the Hillsborough County GOP and supplied data for the organization’s monthly finance reports. None of the other officers knew how to operate Prentice’s software, the party told the the Federal Elections Commission.

“We will be struggling to get all of this entered in the proper format by our deadline on September20, but we will try to do so with our best effort,” the party wrote.

A call and text message to county party chairman Jim Waurishuk were not returned.

2. I Bet This Guy's "Software" Was Just an Excel Spreadsheet. Tracking Donations Ain''t Rocket Science.

3. Not if he was embezzling.

You can make excel very complicated. And if he was using Access with SQL joins...you could make a nice mess.
