Young Paying Off Old Debts With Campaign Funds

Alaska Congressman Don Young (R) spent more campaign money than he brought in during the last quarter. The 19-term Republican filed disclosure forms this week with the Federal Election Commission. They show Young’s campaign brought in about $87,000 n the past three months. It spent over $93,000 and more than half of that was on legal fees. Young’s campaign manager Pamela Day says most of the legal bill money, $46,000, paid off old debt.
