COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) - The Missouri Ethics Commission has dismissed a complaint against Republican attorney general candidate Josh Hawley.

The Columbia Daily Tribune reports (https://j.mp/28ULcfF ) the commission said Friday it found no evidence that Hawley improperly used not-for-profits he created to promote his candidacy without disclosing donors or spending.

The commission didn’t address whether Hawley, an associate professor of law at the University of Missouri, misused public resources to promote his campaign. State law bars the commission from investigating complaints other than campaign finance violations or failure to properly report personal financial information filed within 60 days of the primary until after the general election.

Stacy Heislen, deputy director of the commission, says the complaint, filed by Stoddard County Prosecuting Attorney Russell Oliver, was received on June 3, the day after the deadline.
