“Mr. Irvin has refused to release what company’s stock he sold. This refusal at the very least raises concerns of impropriety, if not illegality.”
I said yesterday that I was still concerned about the propriety of Tommy Irvin investing campaign funds in stock. I actually think that could be a violation of law. Grosclose, in a comment found here, followed up on that and we reach the same conclusion. I’ll save myself time by fronting the comment.
Current GA law is not exactly clear about the admissibility of investments in stocks. Georgia law provides: “(c) Contributions of money received pursuant to subsection (a) of this Code section shall be deposited in a campaign depository account opened and maintained by the candidate or the campaign committee.
