Rep. Tommy Benton: Spent $15K, didn't ID recipients
May 28, 2013 --

Tommy Benton’s campaign reimbursed him $2,909 from 2005 to 2008 for expenses without specifying the end recipient of the money, as required by campaign finance rules. Since 2009, he’s also charged $12,952 of campaign-related expenses to credit cards without specifying the end recipient.

Benton’s top campaign donors — including trade groups for teachers, highway contractors and trucking and billboard companies — reflect his longstanding assignments to the Education and Transportation committees.
