The office of U.S. Rep. Frank LoBiondo is in hot water in connection with an investigation into the New Jersey Republican’s campaign finance reports.
The Federal Elections Commission became aware of disbursement discrepencies last month when LoBiondo’s new treasurer, Douglas Heun, filed amended reports that show LoBiondo’s campaign raised and spent less than it had in the previous two years, as the Inquirer reports.
LoBiondo’s former treasurer, Andrew J. McCrossen, Jr., filed the original reports before being name acting business administrator of the City of Trenton earlier this year. The new reports show a nearly $280,000 discrepancy, but no further details are given.
LoBiondo has represented parts of Southern New Jersey since 1994.
