Another campaign finance problem has cropped up for newly-elected U.S. Rep. Ross Spano, R-Dover, but a spokeswoman said it's mainly clerical and easily resolved.
Meanwhile, Spano has announced he won't accept his congressional salary until the government shutdown impasse is resolved and would support legislation forcing all Congress members to forfeit their pay.
The Federal Elections Commission has sent the Spano campaign a letter requesting information about discrepancies in campaign finance reports, including what appears to be failure to list names of contributors who gave to the campaign through the Club for Growth PAC.
Spokeswoman Sandi Poreda said the problem is minor and blamed former campaign treasurer Jamie Jodoin. But Jodoin said the problems were in a report filed by her successor after she left the campaign, and that the contributors actually were listed. She said a software problem made it appear there were unnamed contributors.
Jodoin was fired by the campaign after it encountered more serious problems, in which Spano acknowledged the campaign may have violated campaign finance law by using proceeds of personal loans to Spano. Jodoin denied responsibility for that.
