Barnes gives back $40,000

September 24, 2002

Atlanta- Barnes returned ten thousand dollars in campaign contributions Tuesday after questions arose about whether the donations exceeded the legal limit.

Earlier this year he refunded thirty thousand after the State Ethics Commission found the money to be improper.

Individual donors are only allowed to give up to $5,000 for the primary and $5,000 for the general election.
