Good Government Group Evaluating Campaign Expenditures

Much attention is paid to who donates to political campaigns, but good government groups say more can be done to keep an eye on how politicians are spending their campaign funds.


A state senator and former state representative turned auditor general both face hearings about campaign expenditures next month before the Illinois State Board of Elections. Good government groups say campaign spending should garner as much attention as campaign donations.


Illinois Campaign for Political Reform Executive Director Sarah Brune (brew-knee) says the group always is concerned about campaign spending.



Bob Reed with the Better Government Association tells WMAY Springfield that questionable spending should be addressed.



However, Reed says any change in the law could be difficult because it would have to go through the very legislators who are spending the money.
