Ethics Complaint Against Kapanke
Dan Kapanke and other state Senators facing recalls are being accused of violating campaign disclosure laws, and might be fined or forced to give back donations.
The Wisconsin Democracy Campaign is filing complaints against Kapanke and two other Senators for failing to reveal information about some of their donors. Democracy Campaign director Mike McCabe says the law requires the names and occupations of people giving more than 100 dollars a year to a candidate. He wants to know more about six thousand dollars given to the Kapanke campaign since the first of the year. McCabe says most candidates are able to comply with those rules. He thinks others who fail to comply may not care about the law.
