"The FEC found probable cause that White committed:
- Eight election law violations by certifying that campaign reports were correct when they were false, incomplete or inaccurate.
- Four violations by using campaign money improperly to defray normal living expenses with the wardrobe purchases and the purchase of a $1,915 Dell computer.
- Two violations by authorizing expenditures prohibited by election law: the $6,100 paid for the clothes and the $1,915 paid for the computer.The Times got some great quotes from the person who filed the complaint:
""It's very clear that this guy doesn't want to be upfront with people," said Schuler, a retired U.S. Air Force master sergeant formerly with a nonprofit housing agency. "If you gave him a $500 campaign contribution, he didn't use it to buy yard signs. He was wearing it."and
"Schuler, who filed the complaint, said he had no clue what option White might take. "Whatever he does," said Schuler, "I'm sure he'll look like a million bucks.""
