NEW YORK STATE (WSYR-TV) — The democratic candidate for Congress in the 24th district is paying back nearly $7,000 after the Federal Elections Commission notified Dana Balter’s campaign that the money she took as a salary was a violation of campaign finance rules.

Candidates are not allowed to be paid a salary until the primary filing deadline.

TA Balter spokesperson tells NewsChannel 9, “this was an oversight, and as soon as the campaign learned about this mistake, we took immediate steps to correct the problem. Dana will no longer be on the campaign payroll and will reimburse the campaign in full.”
