Arberry charged with hiding campaign donations

Attorney General Catherine Cortez Masto charged former Assemblyman Morse Arberry, D., with failure to report over 100 campaign donations totalling $121,545, according to the Las Vegas Sun.

The Sun's Jon Ralston linked to the complaint filed by the attorney general. Ralston noted there are six counts in the complaint but "they all have to do with him being accused of filing false campaign reports."

The Arberry investigation began in October 2010 after he attempted to sign a $10,000-a-month lobbying contract with Clark County district judges. No court date has been set.
