Common Cause Files Complaint Against State Treasurer

State Treasurer John Murante’s choice of an Iowa firm for ads promoting Nebraska’s unclaimed property program is being questioned by Common Cause Nebraska.

Spokesman Jack Gould tells KLIN News they are seeking an investigation by the Nebraska Accountability and Disclosure Commission into Murante’s spending $600,000 with Victory Enterprises that has been a source of personal income.

Gould contends that Murante was obligated under statute to file a conflict of interest statement with the Nebraska Accountability and Disclosure Commission.
