Secretary of State takes legal action against nine campaigns for finance violations

Secretary of State John Merrill is taking legal action against nine noncompliant campaigns who have unpaid campaign finance fines from the last election cycle.

Merrill initiated legal action in Montgomery County Circuit Court against eight Democratic candidates and one Republican candidate. New campaign finance laws passed in 2015 went into effect with the start of the 2018 election cycle, and the laws authorize the secretary of state to initiate legal action against candidates and their principal campaign committees that have unpaid fines.

The candidates and the committees failed to file campaign finance reports on time, resulting in fines, which havenít been paid, the secretary of stateís office says.

There are 24 unpaid penalties among nine noncompliant committees.

Burton Leflore, Democrat

Richard Dickerson, Democrat
Roderick Clark, Democrat
Terrence Johnson, Democrat
Veronica Johnson, Democrat
