Virginia Lawyer Asks State Board For Investigation Into Deeds Fundraising

Play associated audio

A Republican lawyer is asking the Virginia State Board of Elections to levee fines on Democratic gubernatorial candidate Creigh Deeds.

Attorney Gary Byler says Creigh Deeds and allied Democratic organizations have taken millions of dollars from labor groups that either haven't registered with the state board of elections or haven't disclosed donors.

In a letter to the Board, Byler asks for an investigation into whether $3.7 million from the Democratic Governors Association and $1.1 million he claims are union donations comply with state laws.
