Mississippi campaign contributions

The Jackson Clarion-Ledger has two articles today on campaign finance in the governor's race. The first reports that Gov. Ronnie Musgrove (D) will be returning $6,500 in illegal campaign contributions to corporations. Corporations can give $1000 a year to candidates in Mississippi.

The second reports that Lt. Gov. Amy Tuck (D switched to R) reported $510,000 in loans to her 1999 campaign without disclosing the source and her reports since then have not provided a clue as to the present status of the loans.
