SALEM, Ore. (AP) — The state has asked a judge to order political activist Kevin Mannix to submit records connected to his involvement with the Oregon War Veterans Association, a charity accused of making unreported political contributions.
Assistant Attorney General Heather Weigler says the state requested the material in July and Mannix has not delivered.
An attorney for the former Republican gubernatorial candidate told The Register-Guard newspaper (http://is.gd/3puYkB) he was negotiating with the state over the release of records and believed an agreement was near before the attorney general's office filed its motion.
The state sued the veterans association in 2011. It contends the charity accepted contributions intended to help veterans and diverted the money for personal use or to benefit Mannix's political campaigns.
