Missouri Lt. Governor Peter Kinder has reimbursed the state another $1,889, after an audit found that he owed additional money for hotel expenses.
The new payment comes on top of a $52,300 check that Kinder wrote the state in April. His campaign attorney said the original payment roughly equaled Kinder's instate hotel reimbursements but was intended to cover any potentially questionable expenses.
Updated 5:42 p.m. to reflect that the state has received Kinder's check:
Missouri Lt. Gov. Peter Kinder has paid the state $52,320 to cover any potentially questionable expense reimbursements during his term in office.
Kinder wrote the check from his personal funds - a change of plans from when he announced earlier this month that his campaign would pay the state $35,050 to cover St. Louis area hotel stays cited in a story by the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
