Delaware Dems Allege FEC Violations in Senate Race

Posted:

WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) - The Delaware Democratic Party has filed a complaint with the Federal Elections Commission alleging violations of campaign finance laws by an Independent candidate seeking to unseat Democratic Sen. Tom Carper.

The complaint, dated Wednesday, alleges that Alex Pires Jr., a wealthy lawyer and southern Delaware businessman, passed out free food and drink from bars and restaurants he owns at campaign events without disclosing any payments to those businesses for the food and staff time used. The Democrats alleges that Pires violated federal law by accepting prohibited corporate in-kind contributions.

Democrats also claim that Pires has failed to include disclaimers on his website and political communications indicating who paid for them.

Pires had no immediate comment Thursday, saying he wanted to read the complaint before responding.
