As noted earlier, Carole Migden, a state senator from San Francisco, has been chastised by one of her primary challengers for trying to move money into her campaign finance account that, it seems, doesn't belong there. Migden has been slapped with a record fine by the California Fair Political Practices Commission, the SF Chronicle reports:
State Sen. Carole Migden has been fined $350,000 by the California Fair Political Practices Commission, the largest penalty ever levied against a candidate for state office, for dozens of violations ranging from taking campaign funds for personal use to failing to itemize political expenses, the watchdog agency said Tuesday.
Migden has agreed to pay the fine, but at least three of the five commissioners still need to approve the agreement. They are scheduled to meet Thursday to take up the matter.
