Over at the Scene, there's an explanation for that $9,500 receipt in Carr's last filing: It was interest.
A company owned by right-wing millionaire Andy Miller received a $200,000 loan from Joe Carr's Senate campaign. The company, Life Watch Pharmacy, in turn paid the campaign $9,564.54 in interest on the loan.
Since Miller has already reached the maximum for how much he can give personally, the question is whether this amounts to and end-run around campaign finance limits. Loans from campaigns to corporations are "rare," an election law specialist told the Scene.
There are no prohibitions against campaigns making loans to companies, but according to federal campaign finance regulations, the interest paid by a single-member LLC like Life Watch may be attributed to that member as a contribution.
The LLC is also required to provide documentation that it is eligible to make the contribution. There is none in either the amended filing or in a response from the campaign to the FEC.
