Lt Gov Robinson: Clear the air on campaign finance irregularities

1 min read

TLDR: North Carolina Lt. Gov. Mark Robinson, who is running for governor, is facing questions about campaign finance irregularities. Activist Rob Hall filed a complaint with the State Board of Elections 35 months ago, alleging that Robinson’s campaign may have used campaign funds for personal loans, accepted anonymous donations above the allowable limits, accepted contributions from forbidden business sources, accepted individual contributions above the allowable limits, accepted donations from out-of-state political action committees not authorized to be involved in North Carolina elections, and failed to disclose required donor identification information. The complaint has not been resolved, and Robinson’s campaign has not offered any explanations or remedies. Robinson has a history of financial irregularities, including unpaid tax bills, bankruptcies, and seven years of unpaid federal income taxes. He has an obligation to answer these concerns and questions as he seeks the vote of North Carolinians for governor.
