McHenry County State’s Attorney candidate Dan Regna apparently accepted too much money from Scott Breeden.
I received an anonymous letter today with that information.
It was typed in really big letters.
“Regna has no idea of what it means to be lawful,” the unsigned letter said.
“He has accepted contributions from an individual in excess of what is legally the maximum of $5,400 from a single individual.”
Enclosed what a copy of what is on the Illinois State Board of Elections web page.
When I asked a State Board of Elections disclosure expert I was told that the maximum an individual can contribute or loan a candidate is $5,400.
The money above the $5,400 limit must be either
- returned to the contributor or
- contributed to a charity
The contribution and loan in question were the only ones that were $1,000 or more since January 1st.
