Blue Hog Report has asked the state Ethics Commission to review his finding that the Asa Hutchinson for governor campaign reported excessive contributions from one donor.

Hutchinson records indicate four contributions of $2,700 eac h by Scarlett Basore of Bella Vista, two each for primary and general election. The law limits contributions to $2,700 per election.

I’ve sent a question to the campaign about the records.

UPDATE: Jamie Barker of the Hutchinson campaign said they were aware of the complaint and would check records to see if everything had been handled correctly. If the contribution is excessive, the law in Arkansas now allows campaigns to correct errors brought to their attention without penalty. It’s a mulligan rule encouraged to passage by the felonious Sen. Jon Woods.
