SACRAMENTO (AP) - A Fresno assemblywoman, her campaign committee and campaign treasurer were fined $23,000 Thursday by the state's elections watchdog for violating contribution disclosure requirements.

The Fair Political Practices Commission said Assemblywoman Sarah Reyes, her Friends of Sarah Reyes campaign committee and campaign treasurer Gustavo Corona failed to properly disclose $80,000 in donations made to other Democrats and $105,000 in late contributions received by the campaign in 2000.

Reyes acknowledged the violations in a stipulation that she signed on July 12.

I'm sure this is a mis-print by the Associated Press. I'll correct it:

The Fair Political Practices Commission said Assemblywoman Sarah Reyes, her Friends of Sarah Reyes campaign committee and campaign treasurer Gustavo Corona failed to properly disclose $80,000 in donations made to other Democrats and $105,000 in late contributions received by the campaign in 2000.

And I suppose she gets to pay the fine from her contribution fund?

So let me understand this.

My elected representative transfers some of her own campaign fund to another candidate (a violation of state law and the public trust) and then she is reimbursed for the funds and given some profit for her cooperation after the fact (a violation of state law) and all she gets is a small fine which she can pay out of the surplus of her late payoff.

Sounds to me that this individual, her campaign treasurer, her campaign manager, the parties who gave her the cash and the other candidates who participated in this fraud need some jail time.

I'd ask "Where is the Attorney general?", but I know the answer. He's in his closet trying on women's clothing.
