JEFFERSON CITY — The Democratic Attorneys General Association has agreed to pay $10,000 to the Missouri Ethics Commission for campaign finance reporting violations in the 2008 elections.
The group contributed $600,000 in several installments to Attorney General Chris Koster.
The Ethics Commission said half that money was contributed from a Washington, D.C., bank account before the group officially organized in Missouri. It said the Democratic Attorneys General Association failed to make any of its donations through a committee treasurer who was a Missouri resident.
The group's executive director, Travis Berry, acknowledged Wednesday that it made several "technical flaws" in its committee filings. He said the group reported the mistakes to the Ethics Commission.
