Former California Official Fined on Ethics

Former California state official Rosario Marin was fined $5,400 for violating a speaking fee ban, according to this report.

Rosario Marin, who led the State and Consumer Services Agency for three years, admitted to three violations of the state’s ethics law under a settlement with the California Fair Political Practices Commission.

The settlement is subject to approval by the five-member commission at its next meeting June 18. Marin could have been fined $15,000, but commission staff took into account her explanation that she got bad legal advice.
