Inappropriate transfers of campaign funds?


Former Linn County Supervisor Linda Langston could not help herself.  She had to take one last shot at me with other people’s money when she closed her campaign account.  On 5/2/2016, she wrote check #1099 for $750 to Plumbers and Pipe Fitters Local 125.  Her check to Local 125 appears to be an inappropriate transfer of campaign funds.

On 5/11/2016, my opponent received check #1636 for $750 from the Plumbers and Pipe Fitters Local 125.  Due to the timing and amount of the contribution, it appears Langston may have used Local 125 as a conduit to funnel funds to my opponent.  “Strawman” transactions are inappropriate in political campaigns.

Were these transfers illegal?  I will let the Iowa Ethics & Campaign Financial Board decide.  Paid for by Miller for Auditor
