Lantigua’s fund-raising brings inquiry by AG

Lawrence mayor denies illegal aims

Attorney General Martha Coakley has launched an investigation into William Lantigua’s fund-raising practices after state regulators found that the Lawrence mayor and his campaign aides routinely violated campaign finance laws by accepting illegal donations, using public employees to solicit funds, and failing to file accurate reports.

The state Office of Campaign and Political Finance concluded that Lantigua and his campaign aides and financial backers violated 11 different provisions of the campaign finance law since 2008. The attorney general will now conduct her own review to determine whether fines or criminal charges should be sought.
