Opinion 5

A candidate for judicial office has inquired of the Commission whether it is required under the Code of Judicial Conduct (Rule 4.2(B)) that he maintain a separate bank account and appoint a campaign committee for expenditures even though he will not accept contributions and the funds expended will be only his personal funds.

It is our opinion that in these circumstances the provisions of Rule 4.2(B) do not apply.

[Pertinent Code of Judicial Conduct provisions: Rules 1.1, 1.2(A), 4.2(B). Cross reference to other relevant opinions for review: #7, #22, #41, #56, #85, #106, #123, #163.]
