ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. -- Albuquerque's municipal election is on Oct. 3, and KOB has confirmed an ethics complaint against one candidate for mayor is moving forward.


Tim Keller cannot legally raise campaign money because he receives public financing, but 4 Investigates found more than $30,000 worth of questionable contributions. The city clerk on Tuesday confirmed the ethics board has agreed to hold a hearing on a complaint filed against Keller. A date is not set.

The complaint was filed by candidate Wayne Johnson, who faces an ethics complaint of his own. It claims Johnson, who is also a Bernalillo County commissioner, took $40,000 dollars from donors who do business with the county.

Johnson has said the donors no longer have ongoing county business. He believes the complaint, filed by a resident, was in retaliation for his actions against Keller.

Eight candidates are vying to become Albuquerque's next mayor. If no one gets more than 50 percent of the vote on Oct. 3, a November runoff will happen between the top two finishers.
