HONOLULU (AP) - A Hawaii Super PAC is facing a complaint that it failed to report spending more than $86,000 on fliers in the 2012 elections.

The Honolulu Star-Advertiser reported Wednesday that the Campaign Spending Commission's Executive Director Kristin Izumi-Nitao filed the complaint against Pacific Resource Partnership Political Action Committee.

The PRP PAC was organized by a group of union carpenters and independent contractors and was dissolved last year. But the Hawaii Carpenters Market Recovery Program which formed it set up another super PAC called Forward Progress.

PRP says it has been open about its activities and filed expenditures as required. The group says it reported hundreds of invoices accurately during the 2012 elections but it unintentionally missed one filing.
