The Federal Elections Commission has sent a letter to Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders’ presidential campaign over a $10.4 million discrepancy in Sanders’ filings.

In a letter dated March 30, 2016 to Sanders’ campaign treasurer, an FEC official writes:”Line 17(a)(i) of the Detailed Summary Page of your report discloses a total of $3,279,505.25 in contributions from individuals. The sum of the entries itemized on Schedule A-P, however, indicates the total to be $13,745,417.64. These amounts should be the same. Please amend your report to clarify the discrepancy.”

This discrepancy totals $10,465,912.39.

The letter states, “failure to adequately respond by the response date noted above could result in an audit or enforcement action.” The response date is May 4.

The Sanders campaign has not yet responded to a Daily Caller request for comment.
