Pays his sons to work as field coordinators
During the 2004 election cycle, Bradley paid two of his sons, Sebastian and Noel, almost $27,000 to serve as field coordinators for his House campaign. The two worked for roughly five months, and as of 2004, were high-school graduates. It is not illegal for children of a candidate to work for a parents’ campaign. Rather, it is unlawful to be on candidate’s office payroll.
