Marine Glisovic with our content partner, KATV Ch. 7 News, reports:

An ethics complaint has been filed against State Treasurer Dennis Milligan by attorney and Blue Hog Report blogger, Matt Campbell.

Campbell tells Channel 7 he filed it on Thursday morning, however, Milligan’s spokesman Grant Wallace tells KATV he was unaware that a complaint had been filed until we sought a statement.

In the complaint, Campbell cites 14 allegations stating that Milligan knowingly and intentionally violated various provisions of Arkansas law and then knowingly attempted to cover up those violations; most of the allegations cite campaign activity.

Some of the allegations include:

  • Milligan knowingly hiring two spouses of State Representatives
  • Milligan making promises of employment for campaign work to seven individuals
  • Campaigning by Milligan using his publicly furnished office while Saline County Clerk
  • Intentionally misstating original ethics filings to hide campaign workers’ identities
  • Using his Saline County office fax machine for personal horse racing business
