Search warrant for missing donations
El Paso County sheriff's detectives executed three search warrants at the home of County Commissioner Betti Flores on Friday seeking election campaign records based on a criminal complaint that she allegedly failed to report three $500 campaign contributions.
Flores said that she has done nothing wrong and that if the contributions were not listed in her campaign finance reports, it was an accidental oversight.
"If I made a mistake leaving something off my financial statements, I apologize and will fix it," Flores said. "This is a total of $1,500, and it is nothing more than a simple clerical error."
She said the sheriff's detectives came to her home with warrants to search for her campaign bank statements, receipts and copies of any other campaign finance records she had. -- Commissioner's home searched for campaign finance records (El Paso Times)
