Mark Green’s Campaign Will Have to Give Back Half a Million Dollars in Illegal Campaign Contributions
The state Elections Board today told Republican gubernatorial candidate U.S. Rep. Mark Green to return $467,844 in donations from political action committees not registered in Wisconsin – money Green had transferred from his federal campaign fund in 2005.
On several 5-2 votes, the board upheld a complaint from the non-profit Wisconsin Democracy Campaign, which said the Green campaign’s transfer of almost $1.3 million from his federal fund to a state fund violated several campaign-finance laws.
If Rep. Mark Green can’t be bothered to keep his own campaign’s books in order, how do you think he’d do as Governor of Wisconsin?
His response should be interesting. I’ve got him blaming “Angry partisan Democratic bloggers” with 3-2 odds.
