Stockman Faces Questions Over 'Excessive Donations'

Rep. Steve Stockman (R-TX) again has been questioned by the Federal Election Commission for allegedly "excessive contributions" from donors sympathetic to an East Texas tribe's efforts to gain rights to open a casino, the Houston Chronicle reports.

The AP reports Stockman's campaign "has been hamstrung by reported problems with its finances and reporting income. Stockman recently dismissed two congressional staffers for making prohibited contributions, and a recent Chronicle investigation found that Stockman long failed to file federal campaign finance disclosure forms."
