CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - The Attorney General’s office says a union broke state law by giving $25,000 to Gov. Maggie Hassan’s 2012 campaign because it never registered as a political committee with the state and did not record its expenditures.

The ruling came in response to a complaint filed by the New Hampshire Republican Party in August. The party filed the complaint after the AG’s office ruled two other unions illegally gave Hassan a total of $33,000. Hassan’s campaign received the donations one day too late based on state law and had to return the money.

The Plumbers and Steamfitters union made the illegal $25,000 contribution in 2012. The Attorney General’s ruling orders the union to file retroactive paperwork and to stop political work this election cycle until proper paperwork is filed.
