Campaign finance complaint
The State Democratic Party has filed a complaint against James P. McKenna, the write-in Republican candidate for State Attorney General, accusing him of openly violating state campaign finance laws. In an interview with the Associated Press, the Millbury lawyer stated that he had spent $5,000 so far on his campaign, about triple the amount he reported to the state campaign finance office. A statement released by his campaign contends that the candidate had not taken into account the cost of "printing 100,000 stickers and mailing at least 15,000 of the stickers."  McKenna insists that an amended report will be filed with the state agency shortly.
