A Jacksonville man’s complaint against Senator Sam McCann has been dropped.

Fifty-seven-year-old Kirk Million, founder of the Tea Party in Morgan County, filed the complaint earlier this year in regards to McCann’s campaign reimbursements for travel and other expenses.

Million dropped the complaint on Tuesday, but according to the “State Journal-Register”, pledged to reflie it and include more allegations within a month.

Million explained that “technical issues” led to his attorney, Daniel Fultz, withdrawing the complaint a day before a scheduled public hearing on the complaint was set to take place with the State Board of Elections.

Million claims McCann has reported “significant” discrepancies in mileage reimbursements and tens of thousands of dollars in grouped expenditures that weren’t specific enough.

McCann told the Springfield paper he wasn’t surprised the complaint was dropped, “because there is nothing there.”

McCann defeated challenger Bryce Benton in the Republican Primary in March. Democrats don’t have a candidate on the November ballot.
