The nonpartisan Campaign Legal Center on Monday filed the complaint against Highway 31 super PAC with the Federal Election Commission.

The complaint alleges Highway 31 failed to report donors by using a scheme where the PAC received credit from vendors.

Highway 31 spent $4 million in the 2017 Senate election. Many of its spots and mailers focused on accusations against sexual misconduct allegations against Moore.

It was disclosed after Jones' victory that the PAC received much of its money from the Senate Majority Pac, which works to elect Democrats.
