NH Democrats Filing FEC Complaint Against Romney

The New Hampshire Democratic Party is filing a complaint with the Federal Elections Commission questioning whether Republican Mitt Romney illegally used money from his state political action committees to fund his presidential campaign.

In a complaint to be filed Friday, Democrats seek an investigation into whether the former Massachusetts governor violated campaign finance laws by using committees in five states to raise money in excess of federal limits and by spending it on building his presidential campaign.

They cite several examples of people who acknowledge their state PAC donations were meant to assist Romney's presidential campaign and accuse Romney of using PAC money for expenses that should have been paid for by his presidential campaign.

When others have raised similar questions, Romney's team has said it has followed the law.
