Baynum dissolves PAC

Posted: Updated:

Guamanians for Fair Government is no more.

Andri Baynum, head of the political action committee, notified the Guam Election Commission of his intention to dissolve the PAC. Guamanians for Fair Government supported a write-in campaign for the Aguon/Limtiaco team.

Baynum is the subject of a Civil Service Commission Mini-Hatch Act violations complaint alleging he broke the law by endorsing and supporting a political campaign and soliciting and handling donations for that campaign.

When asked if his dissolving of the group had anything to do with the CSC complaint filed against him, Baynum said no.

“Not at all, the group decided to dissolve and we voted,” Baynum said.

Baynum tells KUAM News the dissolved PAC will not be involved in future elections.

“That’s true," he said. "We hope that others in the community have been inspired by our efforts and speak truth to power when necessary.”

CSC Director Pete Calvo said the investigation into Baynum has been completed and will be forwarded to commission members for review during the CSC’s Jan. 29 meeting.

“It was a lengthy investigation,” Calvo said.

He added the complaint against Baynum is still valid even if his PAC has been dissolved.
