RICHMOND, Va. (AP) -- For the second time in as many months, Republican lieutenant governor candidate E.W. Jackson has submitted required state campaign finance reports that fail to properly itemize individual contributors to his campaign.

The State Board of Elections says Jackson filed his paperwork on time. But instead of detailing each donor in the report's Schedule A and the amount given, Jackson lists $48,155.54 from his own campaign as "unitemized small contributions."

That accounted for 41 percent of the $118,508 he reported in total contributions from May 30 through June 30.

Jackson's campaign paid a $100 fine a month ago for tardy filing of campaign donation reports covering April and May. In it, he also failed to itemize donors of $100 or more. He amended and corrected the report two weeks later.
