Former Arkansas treasurer Martha Shoffner made an initial appearance in court today on recently filed federal  charges that she’d illegally spent campaign money on herself. David Goins of Fox 16/KARK reports that Shoffner had no comment for reporters and that her attorney said he was prepared for trial Monday on earlier charges that she took money from a securities salesman in return for state bond business.

Shoffner pleaded not guilty to the latest batch of charges.
