LANSING, Mich. — Michigan election officials are declining to allow the closing three campaign funds from state Treasurer Andy Dillon’s race for governor because of $114,000 that isn’t properly accounted for.
Dillon sought the Democratic nomination for governor in 2010.
The Detroit Free Press says the Department of State’s election division normally requires campaign funds to have zero balances before they can be dissolved.
The newspaper says one Dillon campaign fund has $105,000 in accounting errors, while a second has $8,900 in such errors. It says a third fund was more than three months behind in reporting until the Free Press contacted its treasurer.
Dillon spokesman Terry Stanton says Dillon is aware of the problems and says all three accounts are being closed.
