The eight-page agreement, signed by McKinney’s campaign treasurer, Joan Christian, says there were $106,425 in excessive contributions in 2002 — $42,950 for the primary and $63,475 for the general. Because McKinney lost the primary election, all money collected for the general must be reimbursed.
The agreement says McKinney’s campaign reimbursed $34,199 of the excessive contributions but still owed $72,226 as of August 31, the date of the agreement.
Wow. That’s a big fine. What was that Bobby Kahn was saying about a “Culture of Corruption?”
