Legislator discloses $11K in unreported contributions
Jul. 09, 2018
PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — A Rhode Island lawmaker who recently announced he wouldn't seek reelection has disclosed over $11,000 in unreported campaign contributions.
The Providence Journal reports Democratic state Rep. Kenneth Marshall filed a report with the Rhode Island Board of Elections last week that detailed $11,150 in unreported contributions from the first quarter of 2018. Marshall's original report for that time period didn't list any contributions.
Marshall also charged a personal trip to Florida in February to his campaign account.
Marshall says he didn't get a chance to deliver the campaign checks to the bank immediately. He says he mixed up two credit cards during his trip to Florida and that he reported the mishap after it happened.
Marshall announced last month he wouldn't seek reelection. He had held the House District 68 seat since 2013.
