Nevada Secretary of State Sends AFP Probe To AG

Posted: Updated:

CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) -- Nevada's secretary of state has referred complaints against Americans for Prosperity to the attorney general's office for prosecution of alleged violations of state campaign finance laws.

Americans for Prosperity is an issue advocacy group founded by billionaire brothers Charles and David Koch.

The Nevada Democratic Party filed a complaint with Secretary of State Ross Miller in August, arguing the group hadn't registered or disclosed its finances. That complaint focused on mailers sent before the June primary targeting Democratic Assemblyman Kelvin Atkinson in his state Senate race.

Americans for Prosperity has called the complaint frivolous.

Three other complaints have since been filed against the group.

In an Oct. 4 letter first reported Wednesday by political commentator Jon Ralston, Miller informed the group he has referred the matter to the attorney general.
