House Speaker John Boehner’s financial contributions to the reelection campaign of Rep. Gary Miller, R-Rancho Cucamonga, have been flagged by the Federal Elections Commission.

The FEC sent a letter to Miller’s campaign treasurer on Nov. 7, saying contributions from Boehner’s campaign and a political action committee the Ohio Republican chairs — The Freedom Project — appear to exceed maximum limits.

“This boils down to a simple clerical error relating to an incorrect contribution designation,” Miller said in an email on Friday. “The correction has already been filed with the FEC.”

He did not elaborate on the clerical error.

Boehner’s campaign office could not be reached for comment on Friday.

Individuals and certain political committees are allowed to donate $2,600 toward each election. Primary and general elections are considered separate elections, so one person can essentially contribute $5,200 to the 2014 campaign.
