Ala Dems file complaints against GOP

The Montgomery Advertiser reports: The lead Democrat in Alabama said he has filed complaints with the Internal Revenue Service and the Montgomery County district attorney against top current and former Republican officials for allegedly skirting state and federal law.

Mark Kennedy, chairman of the Alabama Democratic Party, said that Republicans are violating the campaign finance laws they recently passed by transferring money between political action committees, a practice the Republican-led Legislature voted to ban in a December special session.

House Majority Leader Micky Hammon, R-Decatur, bristled at the accusations from Kennedy and pointed to several entities associated with the Alabama Democratic Party that did not file campaign finance reports for years. He mentioned the Alabama Democratic Conference, the New South Coalition and the House Democratic Caucus. ...

Kennedy said prominent Republicans are circumventing the law by operating an LLC or limited liability company, and a nonprofit as PACs. He said that an entity operating as a PAC must follow the new state ethics and transparency laws. -- Read the whole story --> Democrats file complaints against GOP | The Montgomery Advertiser | montgomeryadvertiser.com
