WILMINGTON, NC (StarNewsOnline.com) — The NC Republican Party says US Rep. Mike McIntyre violated campaign finance reporting laws by failing to file reports on time and not disclosing individual donor contributions, according to a complaint letter.
In a letter sent Friday, the NCGOP said McIntyre did not itemize contributions to the “McIntyre 2012 Victory Fund,” required under campaign finance laws. The fund was a partnership with the N.C. Democratic Party. The NCGOP says the victory fund can’t list money from lump sums and didn’t disclose individual donor contributions.
“It is our position we need transparency,” said Mike Rusher, chief of staff for the North Carolina Republican Party. “The voters have the right to know where the money is coming from.”
