Apparently ignorance of the law is an excuse:
Causey, responding to Goodwin's letter, told Bartlett that no laws were violated knowingly and all expenditures were reported properly. But Causey acknowledged he failed to report a $1,020 in-kind contribution for the ads to Collision Expert, a Charlotte-based trade publication for auto body shops.
I was under the impression that failing to report "in-kind contributions" was a serious offense, leading to DA investigations, plea-bargaining for criminal offenses, etc. Or does that just apply to Democrats? I guess I'm just confused...
