New York Conflict of Interest Board fines for solicitation

The Times reports that a Bloomberg aide was fined in connection with a New York Conflict of Interest Board case.  The story is here.

In announcing the sanction on Monday, the city’s Conflicts of Interest Board said in a statement that around April 2007, the former aide, Maura Keaney, made between six and a dozen phone calls to union representatives to ask them to be on the host committee for a fund-raising event for Ms. Quinn’s re-election bid. The ethics board, which fined Ms. Keaney $2,500, noted that serving on the host committee required a campaign contribution.
