Gubernatorial candidate denies improper money usage claims

In the race for Governor, gubernatorial candidate Steve Henry has now filed a written response denying claims that he improperly raised money for the race.

A former campaign aide filed a complaint about Henry's fund-raising tactics in March 2007. The aide alleged that Henry took contributions before he officially entered the race.

Henry calls the charges completely unfounded. He also said the aide did not identify any law that was violated.

Henry is one of seven democrats seeking the nomination. The primary election for governor is May 22, 2007.
