House speaker amends campaign reports on credit card charges

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — North Carolina House Speaker Tim Moore’s political committee has amended more than a dozen campaign finance reports since 2010 to provide additional details about campaign expenses that Moore paid for using his personal credit card.

The State Board of Elections performed recently a random audit of his committee from 2011 to 2014.

An audit letter last month says Moore had been using a credit card to pay campaign expenditures for years and provided records monthly to his campaign treasurer. Campaign finance rules require those expenses be itemized on reports. The treasurer had been reporting them by the expense type.

Deputy elections board director Amy Strange said Tuesday the matter is closed and no penalties are assessed for such reporting errors.

Charlotte television station WBTV first reported about Moore’s report changes.
