Former Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens is being accused of state and federal campaign finance violations as he runs for the U.S. Senate.
Greitens' campaign is accused of violating state law and an agreement with the Missouri Ethics Commission by spending money on his U.S. Senate campaign.

Officials with Greitens' campaign said the original complaint in October was "ludicrous."
