Rory Reid Being Investigated
Secretary of State Ross Miller said Friday his office is looking into Rory Reid’s failed gubernatorial bid following reports that he formed numerous political action committees that pumped money into his campaign.
The Las Vegas Sun reported Reid’s campaign formed 91 shell PACS that were used to funnel $750,000 into his campaign and skirt contribution limits.
Reid told the newspaper the maneuvers were disclosed and complied with the law.
Miller issued a statement, saying he did not have all the facts but would review them carefully.
He says he will consult with the Election Integrity Task Force and the attorney general’s office if the facts rise to that level.
