Ethics Office to Investigate Local Democrats
Last week, LL reported that the city campaign finance office had opened a preliminary inquiry into the D.C. Democratic State Committee.
Wesley Williams, a spokesperson for the office, confirms today that an official investigation has been launched into the committee's finances. Williams was unable to provide details of the probe, but it comes in response to concerns over the financing of the group's trip last August to the Democratic National Convention in Denver.
DCDSC chair Anita Bonds, contacted about the preliminary inquiry last week, denied any wrongdoing.
According to city regulations, the investigation is to be concluded within 90 days, though that time frame can be extended for "good cause."
