State Appeals Court Accuses Governor Schwarzenegger
Sacramento, CA — A state appeals court says a campaign committee controlled by Governor Schwarzenegger broke state law by failing to promptly report millions of dollars in expenditures promoting four measures on last November´s special election ballot.
The 3rd District Court of Appeal says Schwarzenegger´s California Recovery Team should have reported the expenditures within 24 hours after they were made during the 90 days leading up to November 8th election.
The campaign committee´s treasurer, Thomas Hiltachk, says the committee accepts the court´s decision but stresses that all of the expenditures at issue were reported before the election.
A campaign committee that opposed the Schwarzenegger ballot measures says a state commission should fine the Recovery Team.
