New Hampshire Dems Accuse Romney of Finance Violation

Less than a month after announcing the formation of a presidential exploratory committee, former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney is already being accused of violating election laws.

The New Hampshire Democratic Party filed a complaint with the Federal Election Commission on Friday, alleging that the candidate has been using “soft money” donations to fund his presidential campaign, Reuters reports.


The party claims that Romney may be using funds from his PAC (money from unlimited corporate donations), that should not be eligible for funding his campaign. PACs can receive unlimited donations from individuals and corporations, but stricter limitations are put on campaign contributions, according to campaign finance laws.

Romney staffer Andrea Saul called the complaint “totally political."
