Taylorville, IL — The Federal Election Commission (FEC) is dinging
Mary Miller’s campaign for artificially inflating her Q4 2021 fundraising numbers
by double-counting campaign contributions and taking prohibited contributions in excess of federal campaign contribution limits.
“A Republican primary in Illinois’ new 15th District is having campaign finances scrutinized.
“The Federal Election Commission has dinged candidate Mary Miller’s campaign for double counting campaign contributions from her Fourth Quarter of 2021 earnings report.
“The Rodney Davis campaign was quick to point out the double contributions on the publicly filed paperwork, doubling down on calling Miller a “carpetbagger” with “shoddy record keeping.”
“Miller also had to file an amendment to her Quarter 3 filing last year after reporting unlawful contributions in that quarter for excessive contributions from individuals, the American Sugar Company’s PAC, three separate prohibited entities, and from election committees from Republican state Representatives Blaine Wilhour and Brad Halbrook.
