NC elections board to consider McAllister complaint June 27


RALEIGH (AP) -- The State Board of Elections will consider a campaign finance complaint against Representative Mary McAllister's campaign on June 27.

The board announced today the meeting date to consider the complaint about discrepancies in McAllister's campaign reports. The documents appear to show the Cumberland County Democrat loaned her campaign about $5,700 but repaid herself more than twice that amount.

McAllister has said it was a reporting error and the payments never occurred.

The board was supposed to examine the complaint publicly last month but McAllister's attorney received more time to review bank records.

The complaint was filed by former Democratic consultant Joe Sinsheimer.
