'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

Five candidates for judge from Allegheny County missed the June 20 deadline to file campaign finance reports, the Pennsylvania Department of State said on Thursday.

Common Pleas Judge Jack McVay is running for Superior Court. The other four candidates — Dan Regan, Marcia Cooper, Marc Daffner and Common Pleas Judge Paul Cozza — ran for spots on the county bench in the primary, though Regan dropped out before the election. Cozza was appointed to fill an open slot on the bench but had to run for election.

“I was under the impression it was already filed,” McVay said. “It will be corrected.”

McVay's campaign manager, Marty Marks, said one report was filed on time but another required report was in the process of being filed. Any fines will be paid, Marks said.

Other candidates said they have since filed their reports, but state officials said they will remain on a published list of those who did not until they pay their fines.

“I know that mine is filed. I don't know if it was a day late,” Cozza said.

Ron Ruman, spokesman for the State Department, said Cozza's campaign owes $40.

Cooper showed that hers was filed June 24. She said she did not get notice of her $40 fine until Thursday but intends to pay it.

Regan said he didn't think he had to file a post-primary report because he dropped out of the race. Daffner could not be reached for comment.
