The amended filings by Making Maine Great Again say Bean donated $30,000, not $60,000 as the political action committee originally reported.

The PAC now says Diana Bean, who is believed to be Linda Bean's sister, contributed $15,000, with the rest coming from four previously undisclosed donors.

The Federal Election Commission says Bean made excessive contributions to the PAC, which was limited to individual contributions of $5,000 in a single year.

The group is taking steps to change its registration to a super PAC, allowing it to raise unlimited funds.

An anti-Trump group is calling for a boycott of L.L. Bean, but the retailer says Linda Bean's political activity doesn't reflect the company.
