Summary of the Order: In the Order to Show Cause, the Commission commences a hearing proceeding to determine the effect of Mr. Keeney’s felony conviction(s) on his qualifications to be and to remain a Commission licensee and, in light of the evidence adduced pursuant to the foregoing issue, whether Mr. Keeney is qualified to be and to remain a Commission licensee. The Commission received a compliant alleging that Mr. Keeney had been convicted of felony child molestation. The Commission conducted an investigation and determined that, in 2002, Mr. Keeney was charged in the Criminal Division of the Putnam Circuit Court, State of Indiana, with two counts of child molestation in violation of Indiana Code section 35–42–4–3, a Class A felony, and section 35–42–4–3, a Class C felony. Pursuant to a plea agreement, Mr. Keeney pled guilty to one count of felony child molestation, and, on December 10, 2002, was sentenced by the Putnam Circuit Court to six years of incarceration with the Indiana Department of Corrections. The Court ordered that Mr. Keeney serve one year of the sentence with credit for 35 days already served, and suspended the remaining five years of that sentence, but placed Mr. Keeney on supervised probation for five years. Mr. Keeney remains on probation. The Commission determined that Mr. Keeney’s felony conviction raises a substantial and material question of fact as to his qualifications to be and to remain a Commission licensee and may warrant revocation of the license of Amateur Station KP9RFO. Thus, pursuant to sections 312(a) and 312(c) of the Communications Act of 1934, as amended, 47 U.S.C. 312(a) and (c) and section 1.91 of the Commission’s rules, 47 CFR 1.91, the Order to Show Cause directs Lonnie L. Keeney to show cause why the license of Amateur Radio Station KP9FRO should not be revoked, upon the following issues: (a) To determine the effect of Lonnie L. Keeney’s felony conviction(s) on his qualifications to be and to remain a Commission licensee; and (b) to determine, in light of the evidence adduced pursuant to the foregoing issue, whether Lonnie L. Keeney is qualified VerDate Aug<31>2005 18:37 Dec 20, 2007 Jkt 214001 to be and to remain a Commission licensee; and (c) to determine in light of the evidence adduced pursuant to the foregoing issues, whether his Amateur Radio License KP9FRO should be revoked. Copies of the Order to Show Cause were sent by certified mail, return receipt requested, to Lonnie L. Keeney. To avail himself of the opportunity to be heard, Lonnie L. Keeney, pursuant to section 1.91(c) and section 1.221 of the Commission’s rules, 47 CFR 1.91(c) and 47 CFR 1.221, in person or by his attorney, must within 30 days of the release of this Order, file in triplicate a written notice of appearance stating an intention to appear on the date fixed for the hearing and present evidence on the issues specified in this Order. Lonnie L. Keeney pursuant to section 73.3594 of the Commission’s rules, 47 CFR 73.3594, shall give notice of the hearing within the time and in the manner prescribed in 47 CFR 73.3594, and shall advise the Commission of the publication of such notice as required by 47 CFR 73.3594(g).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Matching Fund Submissions Presidential candidates eligible to receive Federal matching funds may present submissions and/or resubmissions to the Federal Election Commission once a month on designated submission dates. The Commission will review the submissions/resubmissions and forward certifications for eligible candidates to the Secretary of Treasury. Because no payments can be made during 2007, submissions received during 2007 will be certified in late December 2007, for payment in 2008. 11 CFR 9036.2(c). Treasury Department regulations require that funds for the convention and general election grants be set aside before any matching fund payments are made. Information provided by the Treasury Department shows the balance in the fund as of October 31, 2007 was $165,383,063 and the Commission estimates that no funds will be available for matching payments in January 2008. As deposits are made from tax returns in the early months of 2008, matching fund payments will be made from those deposits until all certified amounts have been paid. During 2008 and 2009, certifications will be made on a monthly basis. The last date a candidate may make a submission is March 2, 2009. The submission dates specified in the following list pertain to non-threshold matching fund submissions and resubmissions after the candidate establishes eligibility. The threshold submission on which that eligibility will be determined may be filed at any time and will be processed within fifteen business days, unless review of the threshold submission determines that eligibility has not been met. NOCO Submissions Under 11 CFR 9034.5, a candidate who received Federal matching funds must submit a NOCO statement to the Commission within 15 calendar days after the candidate’s date of ineligibility, as determined under 11 CFR 9033.5.

A Candidate who has net outstanding campaign obligations post-DOI may continue to submit matching payment requests as long as the candidate certifies that the remaining net outstanding campaign obligations equal or exceed the amount submitted for matching. 11 CFR 9034.5(f)(1). If the candidate so certifies, the Commission will process the request and certify the appropriate amount of matching funds. Candidates must also file revised NOCO statements in connection with each matching fund request submitted after the candidate’s DOI. These statements are due just before the next regularly scheduled payment date, on a date to be determined by the Commission. They must reflect the financial status of the campaign as of the close of business three business days before the due date of the statement and must also contain a brief explanation of each change in the committee’s assets and obligation from the most recent NOCO statement. 11 CFR 9034.5(f)(2). The Commission will review the revised NOCO statement and adjust the committee’s certification to reflect any change in the committee’s financial position that occurs after submission of the matching payment request and the date of the revised NOCO statement.
