Iowa: Dems file ethics complaint against Nussle

The Quad City Times reports: Iowa Democrats have filed an ethics complaint against GOP gubernatorial candidate Jim Nussle, alleging that he failed to detail spending on staff salaries, consultants and other expenditures in a report filed last month.

Democrats say Nussle should have documented the use of money left over from his 2004 congressional campaign in his current run for governor.

“It appears that Mr. Nussle has violated the letter and the spirit of campaign disclosure laws,” Iowa Democratic Party Director Mike Milligan wrote in a letter to the Iowa Ethics and Campaign Disclosure Board.

Iowa law allows money leftover from federal campaigns to be used in a run for state office as long as it is accounted for in state campaign finance reports. -- Dems file Nussle ethics complaint
