Branstad's campaign breaks law Branstad signed

Posted:

DES MOINES (KWWL) -- Gubernatorial candidate Terry Branstad's campaign illegally purchased two vehicles -- violating a law he signed as Governor in 1991.

One is a 52,000 dollar Winnebago RV, the other a 2005 Pontiac Minivan.

The Iowa law bars campaigns from buying vehicles -- requiring them to lease them instead.

The law was enacted after Branstad bought a van from his campaign in 1990 for less than half its market value.
