TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — The Kansas ethics commission has fined a Congressional candidate for a campaign finance violation.

The Kansas City Star reports that Kelly Kultala, a Wyandotte County Democrat, was fined $100 for transferring $1,000 from her state Senate fund into her congressional campaign account. Kansas law bars from candidates using money raised for state races for federal campaigns.

Kultala, a member of the Kansas senate from 2009 to 2012, is seeking the nomination to challenge Republican incumbent Kevin Yoder in the Third Congressional District. She faces Reginald Marselus of Lenexa in the primary.

The Kultala campaign said it returned the money as soon as it learned it was transferred from her Senate account.
