LITTLE ROCK — The Arkansas Ethics Commission says it's looking into a complaint that Lt. Gov. Mark Darr spent hundreds of dollars from his campaign at restaurants, gas stations and retail stores and illegally classified them as fundraising expenses.

The commission said in a letter to lawyer and blogger Matt Campbell that an investigation had begun into his complaint against the Republican lieutenant governor over his campaign finance reports. The letter, dated Friday, says the panel is looking into whether Darr violated several ethics laws.

Darr dropped out of a south Arkansas congressional race last month after Campbell raised questions about the reports. Darr has also filed an ethics complaint against himself and said he plans to amend his campaign-finance reports to classify the spending as repayment of debts his campaign owed him.
