Wieland Cleared

The Missouri Ethics Commission dismissed a complaint against Rep. Paul Wieland for his use and funding of a campaign vehicle.  See it here.
According to the ruling, Wieland bought a truck for $1,500 and then leased it to his campaign for three months for $1,500 with the campaign paying for repairs to the truck.  The commission based its ruling on that fact that the cost to the campaign was lower than if he’d leased from a private company.
