The Colorado Leadership Fund (CLF) is off the hook on allegations that the conservative 527 organization violated state contribution limits, and its political committee has amended campaign finance reports.
The problem arose when it was revealed by Secretary of State records that the CLF’s political action committee (PAC) had received $136,031 from the CLF itself.
Under law, there is a $500 dollar contribution limit.Colorado Citizen’s For Ethics In Government (CCEG), the watchdog group that filed a complaint regarding the matter, stated in a press release yesterday what happened:
In response to CCEG’s complaint, CLF-PAC revealed to CCEG that it had filed incomplete campaign finance reports with the Colorado Secretary of State.
According to CCEG, the money accepted by the CLF-PAC comprised membership dues, which is one instance where the $500 restriction is void. However, problems were also found with the committee’s finances and the PAC agreed to amend the reports.
