Burcroff’s lawyer Daniel Wholihan acknowledged in a letter to the state that Burcroff used his campaign fund to pay $4,500 in costs associated with his daughter’s wedding in May. He also acknowledged giving his own church recurrent contributions totaling roughly $15,000 from the fund.

Wholihan claimed that although Burcroff had first been advised by an attorney that the costs were reasonable in both instances, he now realises that the Secretary of State might be of a different opinion.

The mayor used money from his fund to cover payments totaling over $4,400 that corresponded with his daughter’s wedding, which was hosted at the same club, as well as $3,800 in recurring “memberships” at the adjacent Belleville Yacht Club. Thousands more were described as “donations” as well.
