The Rochester Post Bulletin reports the complaint alleges Tschumper and his campaign manager violated the state's Fair Campaign Practices and Finance Act when the manager used an illegal corporate contribution of $224 to pay for a campaign advertisement on a Preston radio station. The complaint says when the ads aired they stated they were paid for by Tschumper's campaign committee not the corporation.
Tschumper has denied any intentional wrongdoing saying his manager used a check from a company the manager owns to pay for the ads because he did not have any personal checks with him at the time. Tschumper said the manager was reimbursed by Tschumper's campaign.
A decision on the complaint could come next week, according to Tschumper. Tschumper will be facing Republican incumbent Greg Davids of Preston in the November election.
