TO:    State Representative Barbara C. Pringle

You have requested an advisory opinion on the following issue:

Can a contribution be given from campaign funds to a fundraising event that is being held to raise money for another individual's legal expenses?

SYLLABUS: An expenditure of a candidate's campaign funds to make a contribution for another individual's legal expenses for a criminal conviction is not a proper expenditure of campaign funds.
