SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) - State Attorney General Bob Ferguson has filed a campaign finance lawsuit involving the 2014 campaign for Grant County prosecutor.

The lawsuit was filed Monday in Thurston County Superior Court against former Grant County Superior Court Judge Jerry Moberg and Moses Lake business owner Ken Greene.

The lawsuit seeks a total of $453,852.60 in penalties, plus costs and fees.

The lawsuit alleges Moberg and Greene intentionally concealed the fact they were behind a political mailer attacking candidate Garth Dano in the 2014 prosecutor election in Grant County.

Dano eventually won the race.

If all violations are proven and found to be intentional, Moberg and Greene could each face penalties of $83,616.30, and jointly face penalties of $286,620.
