Rep. Paul Broun still hasn’t explained the true source of thousands of dollars in loans to his campaign.
While he was running for Congress in 2007, Rep. Broun made several loans to his campaign that he said were made from his personal funds and carried no interest. Years later, after the campaign was caught making suspect “interest” payments to Rep. Broun, he amended his Federal Election Commission reports to say two of the loans came from a home equity line of credit — which still left many questions unanswered.
