Guam - The Guam Election Commission's board of directors will be meeting this week to discuss Senator Matt Rector failing to comply with the subpoena issued against him to appear before the agency last Friday.  According to GEC Executive Director John Blas, they believe Rector violated Guam law and could be held in contempt.

He said, "The judge will then make a determination once the judge has a chance to review the case, will make a determination that if the senator is held in contempt, this could possibly mean some jail time, maybe some fines or whatever sanctions that the court feels is appropriate in this case."

Meanwhile, the GEC plans to turn over at least half of the documents and information Senator Rector had requested regarding financial documents related to senators from the 27th to the current Guam Legislature by Tuesday.

The GEC Board will meet on Thursday.
