GOP Election Board Deal Falls Through

Play associated audio

A deal made between the cash strapped Maryland GOP and state election officials to repay former Lieutenant Governor Michael Steele's campaign account has fallen apart.

Steele's account made an improper contribution to the Republican State Central Committee to help cover legal fees during a redistricting dispute several years ago. After an extension on an earlier deadline to repay $75,000 to Steele, the GOP agreed last week to incrementally repay the funds.

But according to the Baltimore Sun, that plan has fallen through. With the agreement broken, it's uncertain how the party will resolve what state officials contend was a violation of campaign finance laws. However, the state elections board campaign finance director says negotiations are underway and a new agreement may be signed today.
