IL: Permissible Uses of Campaign Funds

The question of whether Gov. Blagojevich can use campaign funds to pay legal expenses is the topic of this AmLaw article.

“You can typically use campaign funds in connection with your duties as an officeholder, but not for personal use,” Gross says. “Decisions that have come down with that type of language, which is in the federal law, would allow [Blagojevich] to spend campaign funds to defend himself for alleged illegal actions in connections with his duties as governor.”
