Rep. Enid Waldholtz, R-Utah, was warned twice by her campaign manager in June 1994 that her husband had filed inaccurate reports with the Federal Election Commission, “misrepresented the truth” to campaign staff members, bounced checks to workers and vendors and paid other election expenses with personal checks, according to memos released Wednesday.
When Waldholtz refused to rein in her husband, Joseph Waldholtz, campaign manager KayLin Loveland resigned, she said Wednesday in a telephone interview.
The existence of the Loveland memos has been known, but their contents have not previously been disclosed. Waldholtz’s defense, as outlined in a tearful news conference Monday, is that her love for her husband made her blind to such early signs of trouble.
Waldholtz is scheduled to appear this afternoon before a federal grand jury here that is investigating Joseph Waldholtz for check kiting and other matters.
