"When a watchdog group, the Campaign for Accountability, pored over Crapo's campaign finance reports, it could find no record of the senator reimbursing Hart for the use of her pad - or Hart donating the use of her home as an in-kind contribution to the Crapo campaign."
"The reimbursement came after a watchdog group filed a complaint with the FEC last week alleging that Crapo’s fundraising events constituted illegal in-kind contributions to Crapo’s campaign by the LLC that technically owns the house. Corporations are legally barred from contributing to federal political campaigns."
"On Thursday, Campaign for Accountability, a nonpartisan, nonprofit public accountability watchdog group, filed a complaint with the Federal Election Commission against Crapo and Vicki Hart, the lobbyist owner of the condominium."
