(Neb)-Brewer Agrees To $500 Penalty For Campaign Violation
LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Nebraska 43rd District State Senator Tom Brewer of GOrdon has agreed to a pay a $500 civil penalty for failing to disclose the costs associated with a 500-mile campaign horseback ride across the district.
Brewer , a retired Army colonel who defeated incumbent Al Davis of Hyannis, acknowledged in a settlement agreement that the Nebraska Accountability and Disclosure Commission had enough evidence to find him in violation of campaign disclosure laws.
At issue was the cost of Brewer's "Freedom Ride Across America" when he was running for the Legislature last year.
Richard Schommer of Alliance filed a complaint with the Accountability Commission, saying Brewer didn't disclose the amount he paid for horse feed, food, lodging, and fuel...a violation of the state law that requires candidates to disclose any expenses that benefit their campaigns.
