Florida State Rep. Kimberly Daniels allegedly used campaign funds to advertise her book, “The Demon Dictionary,” according to a Tuesday report from the Florida Times-Union.
The Florida Elections Commission is currently investigating a complaint that Daniels used $4,000 from a 2015 campaign for reelection to the Jacksonville City Council. The representative allegedly purchased magazine advertisements for her book, and encouraged readers of Shofar magazine to read her book. The advertisement didn’t include a reference to her campaign, according to the report.
Daniels claims that the $4,000 paid to the magazine was used for campaign-related activities. Shofar Editor Katina Mickens was hired to cover campaign-related events and manage the official Facebook page.
The FEC is also investigating two other potential violations, one involving Daniel’s use of campaign funds to “defray normal living expenses,” and the other involving the campaign’s filing of incomplete funding reports on time, according to the report.
