A complaint about an illegal campaign contribution to the Proposition 204 campaign appears to have little legal merit, according to the Secretary of State’s Office.

Matt Roberts, the agency’s spokesman, acknowledged his office got a two-page complaint from Shawnna Bolick alleging that the Quality Jobs and Education Committee illegally got $120,000 from the Arizona Students Association.

Bolick contends that some association board members and officers may have violated the organization’s bylaws in approving the funds. And she wants Secretary of State Ken Bennett to order the campaign to return the money.

“This money belongs to Arizona’s public university students and it may not be used for political purposes without their consent,” she wrote.
