Ten donors to Gov. Walker break campaign finance law.
(AP) - Wisconsin state insurance commissioner Ted Nickel and nine others who donated to Republican Gov. Scott Walker have been accused of breaking the state's campaign finance law. Watchdog group the Wisconsin Democracy Campaign filed a complaint Wednesday with the Government Accountability Board related to donations that exceeded the $10,000 limit allowed to be given during the campaign period. Nickel gave $10,255 to Walker's campaign in three donations. The first was in October 2008 and the last two came in August. He was selected as insurance commissioner in January. The largest donor was Michael White of River Hills, who gave $15,000 -- $5,000 above legal limits. The donations came between July 1, 2008, and the end of last year.
