CHARLOTTE, N.C. — North Carolina’s elections agency wants bank records from a state lawmaker’s campaign that’s filed donation reports late or with discrepancies in recent years.

An elections board official wrote Democratic Rep. Rodney Moore of Charlotte this week saying her office was still working to reconcile his filings and that “there are a number of issues still outstanding.”

Citing a records request, The Charlotte Observer reported an analysis of campaign filings showed 17 contributions totaling $9,450 from political action committees to Moore’s campaign are not listed in Moore’s paperwork.

Moore — now in his fourth term — said Wednesday those numbers sounded a “little far-fetched” but he’s working with his campaign treasurer to clear up any problems. The newspaper said Moore’s campaign was assessed five late-filing penalties in the last two years.
