LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - The man who filed a complaint about campaign finance issues involving Metro councilman and mayoral candidate Jim King and his daughter, Judge Katie King, has filed an affidavit with the special prosecutor.
Ed Springston filed the report showing that Jim King gave $130,000 to his daughter, money which Katie King then gave to her campaign. Campaign donors are only allowed to give $1,000 each election.
The Kentucky Election of Registry Finance board voted unanimously to not refer this matter to the Attorney General for prosecution and instead sent it to its staff for mediation.
Shelby County attorney Hart Megibben will be representing the Commonwealth in the case.
