Secretary Of State Investigates Hawley Campaign

The Missouri Secretary of State Office has launched an investigation into allegations that Attorney General Josh Hawley used public funds for campaign purposes.

The American Democracy Legal Fund requested the investigation last month, and the Secretary of State confirmed the investigation today. [Thursday]

The request alleges Hawley used public funds at Attorney General to support his candidacy for U.S. Senate by instructing political consultants to direct state, taxpayer-paid staff to undertake tasks that would raise Hawley’s profile in his bid to represent Missouri the U.S. Senate.

Hawley defeated democratic incumbent Claire McCaskill in the November 6 election.
