LITTLE ROCK, AR - Senator Jeremy Hutchinson received a warning and a fine of $500 from the Arkansas Ethics Commission for taking campaign funds as personal income. Hutchinson reported himself to the commission.
The complaint centered on two checks drawn on Hutchinson's campaign account which were deposited in his then-girlfriend's personal bank account shortly after the 2010 general election, according to documents released by the commission.
The commission also cited Hutchinson for failing to accurately disclose spending on campaign finance records.
