Douglas County Sheriff Candidate Admits Campaign Finance Violations –
AFTER Being Found Guilty on 10 Counts
DENVER (CBS4) – Douglas County Undersheriff Tony Spurlock, who is hoping to become the next Douglas County sheriff, has admitted to a series of campaign finance violations which he characterizes as “clerical errors.”
“What we did is wrong,” Spurlock told CBS4. “I take full responsibility for the error as it is my committee.”
In a Feb. 11 ruling, a State of Colorado administrative law judge ordered Spurlock’s campaign to pay a penalty of $4,050 for the violations, but says that amount will be reduced to $1,000 if Spurlock’s campaign files a correct, amended campaign report.
The judge ruled Spurlock’s campaign inadequately disclosed information about multiple contributors and inadequately reported campaign expenditures.
