KANSAS CITY, Mo. — UPDATE 3:50PM 4/16/2018: Jackson County Legislature Chair Scott Burnett has returned two campaign contributions that are currently under review by the state.
A newly-filed report shows Burnett has returned a $500 campaign contribution from former County Executive Mike Sanders' campaign committee and a $200 contribution from current County Executive Frank White.
The reimbursements are listed on the last page of a new report released April 15, 2018 by Burnett's campaign committee "Friends of Scott Burnett" filed with the Missouri Ethics Commission.
That report also shows the campaign stopped payment on a $50 contribution to "Committee for Michele Skelton".
When reached by phone, Burnett Campaign Treasurer Meghan Tallman said the Sanders and White contributions were returned in March after Ethics Commission Investigator Glenda Elliott noted the contributions were illegal under Missouri law.
The Missouri Ethics Commission is reviewing a $500 contribution from former Jackson County Executive Mike Sanders' campaign fund to Jackson County Legislature Chairman Scott Burnett's campaign fund.
