Kentucky: former aide files campaign-finance complaint against Henry

AP reports: A former campaign aide to gubernatorial candidate Steve Henry filed an election finance complaint Friday alleging Henry improperly raised money for his state race through a federal campaign committee.

Leslie Holland, who served as Henry's campaign manager and spokeswoman last fall, made the allegations in a complaint filed with the Kentucky Registry of Election Finance, according to Oliver Barber Jr., an attorney representing Holland.

Henry is one of seven Democrats seeking the nomination in the May 22 primary. ...

Holland's complaint said the lists contain donors who gave to Henry before he filed to run for governor in January and selected Renee True, the Fayette County Property Valuation Administrator, as his running mate.

Kentucky law has no provision for exploratory committees for gubernatorial candidates - they must file to run in order to raise campaign funds. -- The Cincinnati Post - Henry's former manager files finance complaint
