HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

State Rep. Angus McKelvey, whose district includes Lahaina and Kihei, was charged Wednesday with failing to report political contributions and for unauthorized expenditures of campaign funds.

Campaign spending records show that McKelvey, who is chairman of the House Consumer Protection and Commerce Committee, reported zero contributions for the first six months, but his amended report said he received more than $33,000.

The complaint by the state Attorney General's office also said that he allowed his mother to receive and spend campaign money, which is illegal because she's not an official with the campaign.

In August, Kauai Rep. James Tokioka was fined $1,000 and issued a public apology for failing to report campaign contributions.
