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.” Trouble in Trunkland
