RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) – Two ethics complaints filed against Gov. Pat McCrory earlier this year have been thrown out by the North Carolina State Ethics Commission.

One of the complaints lodged by the group Progress North Carolina Action said McCrory should have included on his economic disclosure statement cash and stock he received from online mortgage broker LendingTree from when he served on its board. The other complaint centered on trips he took that were paid for through the Republican Governors Association.

Progress North Carolina Action released last month’s dismissal documents Wednesday after McCrory announced the decision. State law doesn’t allow the ethics commission to publicly release its decisions.

The documents say the commission didn’t find probable cause that McCrory violated laws overseen by the panel.

Progress North Carolina Action criticized the decision.
