In his latest campaign finance report, Bethlehem Mayor John Callahan lists "expense reimbursements" of $404.93 and $94.80, without any further explanation. Without more detail than that, it's impossible to know whether Callahan even used the money legitimately. And even if he did, it's impossible to know whether he used the money to hire poll workers or door knockers for someone else seeking office. Basically, it defeats the whole point of requiring these reports.
In response to a complaint I filed with Northampton County Elections Registrar Dee Rumsey, she contacted Callahan about my concerns.
To his credit, he has agreed to amend his latest report.
