Panel Dismisses Ethics Complaint

DES MOINES (AP) -- The Iowa Ethics and Campaign Disclosure Board has dismissed a complaint against the state auditor.

The Des Moines Register reports Auditor Mary Mosiman's lawyer says the board approved a memorandum of understanding Thursday in which it declines to make a finding on the complaint because the law surrounding the issue isn't clear. The board intends to write an advisory opinion to give guidance to future candidates.

Iowa Democrats file the complaint and provided records showing Mosiman used more than $1,000 in from her campaign account to pay for training sessions and reimburse herself for travel costs in 2012. That was after she resigned her elected position as Story County auditor and started working  for the secretary of state.

Gov. Terry Branstad appointed Mosiman auditor in May. She's a Republican.
