Election filings show a political action committee from Mingo County has returned $3,700 in contributions to the campaigns of four Democrats.
The Charleston Daily Mail reported the Team Mingo 2012 PAC returned the money to political campaigns for Agriculture Commissioner Walt Helmick, state Sen. Art Kirkendoll, state Treasurer John Perdue and former Sen. Mark Wills.
Republican Party activist and Ohio University sports broadcaster Rob Cornelius had filed a complaint with the secretary of state's office about the contributions.
Secretary of State spokesman Jake Glance has said campaigns of active candidates cannot make donations to unaffiliated PACs such as Team Mingo PAC.
County Prosecutor Michael Sparks has said the Team Mingo 2012 PAC wasn't connected with Team Mingo, a group formed to help Democrats get elected in Mingo County.
