New York City: mayoral candidate accused of overspending

WCBS-TV reports: With just a week until the democratic mayoral primary, a panel is meeting tonight to decide whether candidate Gifford Miller broke the city’s campaign finance rules.

Gifford Miller today brushed off the latest dispute over his campaign finances.

“This is the sort of insider issue not a big issue to New Yorkers," Miller said.

But with one week to primary day, the timing for him wasn't good. Today the campaign finance board refused to dismiss complaints by Miller's rivals that he flouted the law, spending over a million dollars more than he's allowed. -- Gifford Miller Accused Of Breaking Finance Rules
