Complaint alleges Maine GOP assistant leader's PAC expenditures violated campaign finance law

An Aroostook County man has filed a complaint against assistant Maine House Minority Leader Trey Stewart of Presque Isle, alleging that the Republican legislator violated campaign finance law by using a political action committee to reimburse himself for clothes and new tires.

The complaint by Fort Fairfield resident Rommy Haines alleges that Stewart ran afoul of a law designed to prevent legislators from using private donations to political action committees to enrich themselves.

Stewart, who recently relinquished control of the PAC, is now running against Democratic state Sen. Mike Carpenter, the former Maine attorney general, in what’s expected to be a tight race that could help determine control of the state Senate.

In his complaint, Haines flagged four expenditures for the Ethics Commission, two in 2018 and two in 2019.
