Trouble in Trunkland

Sen. President Stephen Sweeney (D-3) wants more than $75,000 in contributions to attorney Niki Trunk frozen because of questions over who gave her the money, according to a report in the Star-Ledger.

“The lawsuit, which names Senate Minority Leader Thomas Kean Jr. (R-Union) and the U.S. Senate campaign of state Sen. Joe Kyrillos (R-Monmouth), claims two large checks initially reported by Trunk as coming from the Kyrillos campaign were illegal and had to be returned. After a complaint had been filed with the state Election Law Enforcement Commission, an amended campaign finance report was filed showing the money had come from the leadership PAC controlled by Kean.”
