Campaign funding complaint filed against 8th District candidate
A complaint filed this week with the Federal Election Commission accuses 8th Congressional District Republican candidate Manju Goel of illegally mixing the finances of her campaign committee with those of an Indian American SuperPAC and a private business owned by one of her leading supporters.
But both Goel, 48, and the supporter — Carol Stream businessman Shalli Kumar — deny allegations of impropriety.
“I haven’t done anything illegal and my campaign is squeaky clean,” Goel said.
Goel, an Aurora resident, is running against Larry Kaifesh, 46, of Carpentersville in the March 18 Republican primary.
