Arkansas Senator Admits to Campaign Finance Oversights
After questions arose regarding certain contributions, state Senator David Sanders admitted to a mistake of contributing $5,000 of his 2014 campaign’s surplus funds to his political action committee. After admitting the mistake and consulting with the Arkansas Ethics Commission, Sanders returned the contributions to 12 campaign contributors.
Sanders also admitted to failing to file required reports for his political action committee, which have since been filed to remedy the problem. Sanders chalked up his mistakes as “simply an oversight,” and there are no penalties expected to be handed down by the Arkansas Ethics Commission.
