Fine in California

A state senator, her campaign manager, and an assistant were hit with a $350,000 fine from the California Fair Political Practices Commission.   There were allegations of personal use, as well. 

The 35-page FPPC report on the fines said Migden on eight occasions between 2005 and last June spent a total of $16,317 in campaign funds that “conferred a substantial personal benefit” to her without having a reasonable “political, legislative or governmental purpose.” The report did not disclose how the money was spent.

Under the law, the FPPC could have fined Migden $445,000 for the 89 counts, but she, Sanders and Potashner stipulated to the $350,000 fine.
