Loophole lets legislators pocket $343K despite session ban

Loophole lets legislators pocket $343K despite session ban
May 11, 2010 --

Georgia legislators cannot accept campaign contributions while they are in session. Except when they can. Four lawmakers running for Congress collected more than $343,000 in campaign funds between them while the General Assembly was in session this year, federal campaign filings show. Rep. Clay Cox, seeking the seat being vacated by Congressman John Linder, led the pack with $114,712.
