Alabama Dems accuse Riley of PAC-to-PAC violation

The Huntsville Times reports: The chairman of the Alabama Democratic Party Friday accused former Gov. Bob Riley of violating a new campaign finance law that bans PAC-to-PAC transfers. But a Republican leader said the transfer was a mistake that was corrected.

Democratic Chairman Mark Kennedy said the violation occurred when $50,000 was transferred from the Republican State Leadership Committee Political Action Committee to the Alabama 2014 PAC on March 15.

Kennedy said that transfer violated one of several new ethics reform laws that Riley signed into law on Dec. 20, 2010, during a special legislative session on ethics.

An amended pre-election report filed with the Alabama Secretary of State's office by the Alabama 2014 PAC revealed the violation, said Kennedy. -- Read the whole story --> Riley-led PAC admits to violation of new ethics law ex-governor signed into law in December | al.com
