N.C. Democratic Party Executive Director Andrew Whalen has filed a complaint with the State Board of Elections that accuses Republicans of failing to properly document an October golf fundraiser.
The complaint comes after a string of complaints filed against Democratic Gov. Bev Perdue by N.C. Republican Party Chairman Tom Fetzer. Whalen's complaint states that in October, the party held a fundraiser at Riverwood Golf and Athletic Club in Clayton. The club is managed by former Republican gubernatorial candidate Fred Smith.
A round of golf, lunch and a reception cost $1,000 per golfer, according to the complaint. The reception was at Smith's home.
According to the complaint, no in-kind contributions from Smith appear in campaign finance reports. Furthermore, the complaint states that the "N.C. Republican Senate Committee," which solicited contributions for the event is not registered as a PAC.
CORRECTION: Post now correctly states Whalen's title. Dome regrets the error.
