(Cincinnati) Attorney Nathaniel Livingston Jr said he has filed a complaint with the Cincinnati Elections Commision against Cincinnati Councilman Christopher Smitherman. The complaint alleges that Smitherman violated campaign contribution laws. Cincinnati law prohibits candidates from accepting more than $1,100 from any individual. The complaint states public records show Smitherman accepted $2,200 from his brother Albert Smitherman and $2,700 from his sister-in-law Liza Smitherman. It alleges he may also have received illegal donations from their company Jostin Construction, Inc. The Elections Commission is expected to investigate.
