LeVota Closes Campaign Committee after Money Transfer to PAC

Missouri House of Representatives

Former Missouri Senator Paul LeVota has transferred more than $100,000 from his campaign committee to a political action committee that lists his wife as treasurer. 

Nancy LeVota filed paperwork this week to create Leadership for Missouri PAC. Paul LeVota's campaign committee wrote a check to the PAC Wednesday for $103,589, according to filings with the Missouri Ethics Commission. The PAC's paperwork does not list any ballot issues or candidates it supports or opposes.

Nancy LeVota was also the treasurer of the campaign committee. It was terminated the same day as the money transfer.

Paul LeVota, a Democrat from Independence, resigned his Senate seat in August following claims that he sexually harassed interns, which he has denied. He did not immediately respond to a request for comment Thursday.
