BIRMINGHAM — U.S. Rep. Robert Aderholt’s re-election campaign has paid $13,000 in penalties for filing inaccurate finance reports.

U.S. Representative Robert Aderholt (R) alabama 4th District

The Birmingham News reports that documents released recently by the Federal Election Commission show Aderholt’s campaign account misrepresented how much money it raised spent and had on hand for several years.

Records show more than $58,000 in campaign receipts were misstated from 2006 through 2010. And there were inaccurate records about how $129,600 was spent. Another $273,000 wasn’t deposited into the campaign account within the required 10-day period.

Aderholt’s campaign also reported it found more than $100,000 in spending from 2006 through 2009 that wasn’t previously disclosed.

A spokesman for the Republican from Haleyville, Brian Rell, calls the mistakes “garden-variety accounting errors.”

Democratic attorney Daniel Boman of Sulligent is opposing Aderholt in November.

Aderholt represents Franklin County and the winner of November’s race will also begin representing Colbert County.
