Bullock Campaign Donations Exceed Legal Limits

Posted: Updated:

Almost a year after he was elected to office, Governor Steve Bullock will have to correct a bookkeeping error that led to excess campaign donations.

Officials from the Office of Political Practices say Bullock's campaign accepted three contributions from separate Political Action Committees that exceed legal limits.

Deputy Commissioner Jay Dufrechou says the mistake is understandable, though not excusable, as Bullock accepted 10,000 contributions during his gubernatorial campaign.

Friends of Steve Bullock Spokesman Kevin O'Brien says the donations, totaling about $860, have not been spent.

O'Brien responded Friday afternoon saying, "We agree with the Commissioner that the mistakes are minor, unintentional and 'technical. We'll continue to work with the Commissioner's Office to ensure these minor mistakes are rectified."

The three contributions in question came from the Pfizer PAC, the RAC Good Government Committee and Glaxosmith Kline PAC.
