BATON ROUGE - A Democratic group has filed charges that Republican U.S. Rep. Bill Cassidy has violated state and federal laws by filing conflicting personal income statements in 2008.

The Advertiser reports The American Democracy Legal Fund filed the charges with the House Office of Congressional Ethics and the Louisiana Board of Ethics Wednesday, a day after the state Republican Party filed a complaint about U.S. Sen. Mary Landrieu using public money to pay for campaign flights.

Landrieu said charging her campaign charter flights to her Senate office was a bookkeeping error and it has been corrected by repaying the Senate with her campaign funds.

Cassidy is challenging Landrieu's re-election this fall.

The ADLF is asking for investigations to determine if laws were broken, and if so, that Cassidy be prosecuted.
