The state on Friday closed a complaint alleging campaign filing misconduct against Sean Reyes, a Republican candidate for attorney general. Utah election officials concluded Reyes is in compliance with state campaign disclosure laws.
Mark Thomas, director of elections at the lieutenant governor's office, wrote the letter with that finding to Kelly Smith, a Sandy resident who filed the complaint on April 4. The Reyes campaign was notified of the resolution Friday.
The complaint alleged Reyes had contributed $5,000 to his campaign in 2010 from a political action committee he ran before he established a personal campaign committee. The Reyes campaign said it was supposed to have been listed as a reimbursement and amended the filing.
