COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) -- South Carolina's top prosecutor has amended his campaign filings to account for $134,000 in donations and expenses.
The campaign chairman for Attorney General Alan Wilson says the 68 donations and 16 payments were left off the disclosures because of clerical errors.
The 59 checks and nine online donations that came in after Wilson won the office totaled $66,890. The payments totaled $66,797. The corrected campaign reports were filed online Friday, a month after the unreported donations were discovered.
Campaign chairman Thad Westbrook initially estimated that 10 to 15 donations were mistakenly unreported.
That number represented sponsors for Wilson's inaugural gala that were unaccounted for in the online filings. An independent accountant who reviewed Wilson's campaign account found many more mistakes. Most involve deposits made on two days in January.
