Politics Chat: Chabot's Missing Campaign Money A Serious Matter
The Federal Elections Commission (FEC) wants to know why an audit of U.S. Rep. Steve Chabot's campaign finance reports indicate that $123,000 has gone missing. Chabot, through a campaign lawyer, says he doesn't know and is very upset over the matter.
The focus of the investigation seems to center around Jamie Schwartz, Chabot's longtime campaign manager and adviser, who has shut the doors of his campaign consulting company and can't be reached for comment. WVXU's Senior Political Analyst Howard Wilkinson spoke with News Director Maryanne Zeleznik about how serious a problem this is for Chabot and whether or not it will impact his re-election campaign.
