Update #2, March 19th, 7:15 p.m. Eastern: The Washington Examiner’s updated report has removed Paul’s office’s statement suggesting that the FEC page was a hoax, and now states that the FEC page is a “common bureaucratic procedure”: “The mix-up appears to have occurred from a common bureaucratic procedure. In 2013, the Human Actions super PAC had reported independent expenditures supporting Paul for President. Since the FEC can’t link transactions to a candidate that doesn’t exist, the agency set up an ID page that seemed to note Paul was filing to be president. The FEC has done this before, but it has never caused such confusion, the spokesperson told the Examiner. The page was not readily available on the FEC’s website and the agency doesn’t know how the ID page was discovered.”

Update #1, March 19th, 2:40 p.m. Eastern: There have been conflicting statements regarding this filing, which had been reported by BenSwann.com as well as the Washington Examiner and Mediaite. Paul’s office told the Washington Examiner that he “hasn’t filed anything and the page appears to be a hoax,” while an FEC spokesman told CNBC that the circulated filing is an “old ID page created in 2013 after a Super PAC filed an independent report saying was supporting Paul for a 2016 bid.”

Reuters had reported on Wednesday that Paul would announce his candidacy on April 7th, according to an unnamed source close to Paul.

Paul’s office was unable to be reached for comment on the filing. This would make Sen. Rand Paul the first candidate on either the Republican or Democratic side to file for the Presidency.
