Ritter: More Campaign Spending Violations Found

By  | 

Denver (AP) Colorado Gov. Bill Ritter has notified prosecutors that more spending violations have been uncovered from his 2006 campaign, and that a former aide has written his campaign a check for $10,340 to correct the problem.

The new violations were reported Monday.

Ritter had told the Arapahoe County District Attorney in April that his campaign violated finance laws by improperly paying about $217,000 to 28 vendors last year.

He said at the time his Campaign and Inaugural Committee Chairman, Greg Kolomitz, also overpaid himself and his company $83,250 out of Ritter's inaugural account.

Ritter's spokesman, Evan Dreyer, says the District Attorney is still investigating.
