The state’s political ethics watchdog has opened an investigation into the finances of a political action committee founded by gubernatorial candidate Tim Donnelly, according to a report published Friday evening by the Sacramento Bee.‎

The California Patriots PAC, designed to promote conservative candidates, has not filed financial disclosure statements since October 2012, according to the Fair Political Practices Commission. Donnelly disputes this, telling the Bee that the reports were filed and new copies were sent to the FPPC on Thursday.

Donnelly, a state Assemblyman from San Bernardino County, is the front-runner among Republicans to take on Democratic Gov. Jerry Brown in the fall, but has raised little money for a statewide contest. He has raised more than $500,000 for his gubernatorial bid, mainly from small-dollar donors, but the most recent financial disclosure report filed at the end of March said that he had $10,765 in the bank and $148,000 in unpaid bills.
