Just days after state Rep. Russ Spano (R-Riverview) defeated attorney Kristen Carlson (D) 53-47%, controversy arose. Complaints that Mr. Spano accepted approximately $180,000 in allegedly illegal campaign loans have now reached Washington. In a response to the NC-9 situation that will probably result in no one being seated until a new election is scheduled and conducted, Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, very likely the next Speaker, indicated that a question may be posed about whether Mr. Spano should be seated on January 3rd because of this campaign finance situation.
