ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — The Maryland Democratic Party has filed a second complaint alleging campaign finance violations against Republican Gov. Larry Hogan's campaign, but the governor's lawyer is calling it "a media stunt."

The complaint filed Thursday with the state elections board is alleging "a number of suspicious" campaign donations from companies with similar names and addresses that would exceed legal amounts.

Chris Ashby, Hogan's attorney, says there is "zero legal basis" for the complaint.

The complaints were filed after state Sen. Clarence Lam, a Democrat, wrote in The Baltimore Sun last month that Hogan has appointed board members to the University of Maryland Medical System who have donated to his campaign, including "some in apparent excess of campaign finance limits." The board has been embroiled in a scandal involving self-dealing among board members.
