Report: Sen. Mark Kirk's ex-wife files campaign finance complaint

Tuesday, May 29, 2012

Sen. Mark Kirk is reportedly the focus of a campaign finance complaint filed by his ex-wife.

According to the Chicago Tribune, Kimberly Vertolli is alleging the junior Republican senator hid payments to his ex-girlfriend, Dodie McCracken, by reporting they went to another company.

The newspaper reports McCracken acknowledged receiving more than $143,000 for working on the campaign.

Kirk's campaign manager says the senator did nothing wrong.
