Carter committee told to repay some funds

The Federal Election Commission ordered Jimmy Carter's 1980 campaign committee to pay the government $105,000, mostly in interest earned on federal campaign funds. The audit, which found no major problems with the Carter financial report, said it was legal to invest federal funds as the campaign committee did.

The commission had hoped to release the final audit of President Reagan's campaign, but his lawyers went to court to block the release. Court papers said the panel could order the campaign to repay as much as $1.5 million -- a record for a presidential campaign -- but indicated the amount was in dispute and that individuals involved in the campaign would be damaged if the report came out prematurely
