Shaw campaign (D17) in more trouble

As if the challenge to his candidacy based on residency wasn't bad enough (hearing scheduled for downtown Phoenix on Thursday), the Augustus Shaw is facing the possiblity of thousands of dollars in fines arising from campaign finance law violations stemming from his failure to file campaign finance reports for his 2004 run for the Tempe City Council.

From the Phoenix New Times -
Augustus Shaw, a Republican running for State Legislature, failed to close out a political action committee he started when he ran for Tempe City Council in 2004, officials say.

Because of state campaign-finance laws, Shaw should have either terminated the PAC or filed finance reports each a year.

Because he's done neither since 2005, Tempe officials tell New Times, Shaw is on the hook for thousands of dollars in penalties.

Stay tuned for results from tomorrow's hearing...
