Wynn files complaint against rival

January 30, 2008

WASHINGTON -- The campaign manager for Rep. Albert R. Wynn has filed a complaint with the Federal Election Commission alleging fundraising improprieties by Donna Edwards, Wynn's chief rival in next month's Democratic primary.

The Wynn campaign handed reporters a 34-count complaint yesterday alleging illegal collaboration between the Prince George's activist and several of the organizations supporting her in the 4th District contest.

In a statement, Edwards dismissed the complaint as "a desperate 11th-hour attempt" by Wynn "to deflect from the fact that groups representing the core of the Democratic party and the issues it stands for ... have decided that they want to fire him and are supporting me."

Paul Ryan, an attorney with the independent Campaign Legal Center in Washington, said the complaint didn't appear to contain any facts that would constitute illegal collaboration.
