22 Monument Square Portland, ME 04101-4049 Dear Mr. Bailey: The Ethics Commission staff is conducting an investigation of the Cutler Files website. The website expressly advocates for the defeat of Eliot Cutler. The expenditure for the website therefore violates 21-A M.R.S.A. § 1014 because the website does not include information concerning “who made or financed the expenditure” for the website and whether it was authorized by any candidate. Depending on other factual circumstances, the financing of the website may violate other statutes as well. Assistant Director Paul Lavin and I request an opportunity to interview you concerning who may be involved in the website and other related topics. We prefer an interview in person, but it might be more efficient to do a preliminary interview by telephone and we would follow up in person with any further questions which would not be duplicative. Are you available for a telephone interview tomorrow? My number is 287-4179. I look forward to hearing from you soon regarding scheduling. Sincerely,

Jonathan Wayne Executive Director
