Capitol Alert

The latest on California politics and government

The San Diego Union-Tribune is reporting that Assemblyman Joel Anderson, R-Alpine, has returned more than $100,000 in contributions that are the center of a probe into his campaign-related financial transactions.

The Fair Political Practices Commission is investigating a series of transactions in which Anderson and his supporters wrote large checks to county Republican committees days before the committees deposited similar amounts into Anderson's campaign coffers.

There is no legal cap on on how much cash a candidate or individual donor can give to a county party committee or how much a committee can donate to a candidate's campaign chest, but advance coordination on such contributions is illegal.
