WASHINGTON - The Federal Election Commission announced Thursday that it has fined the campaign of Sen. Arlen Specter $10,900 and ordered it to repay $37,950 in excessive contributions from his 2004 re-election campaign.
The Pennsylvania Republican-turned-Democrat, who's running for re-election again this year, accepted about $719,000 in contributions from individuals and $21,850 from political action committees that exceeded federal giving limits. The Specter campaign gave most of that money back, but the FEC found that $37,950 remains to be refunded.
The FEC found campaign treasurer Stephen Harmelin, a Philadelphia attorney, to be at fault for the contributions and noted that Mr. Specter was in no way at fault. The FEC and the campaign agreed on the penalties and the facts of the case.

Arlen...Please go away...PLEASE.
I almost feel sorry for him. Seems he can’t do anything right these days. Almost.
Arlen, this just keeps gettin’ better and better!
Wonder what Michelle Bachmann thinks about this??? ;-)
2004. And that would be donations from Republicans? What a crumb bum.
Yeah, the folks he turned his back on mid stream. So there’s a kind of poetic justice. In his budget this isn’t even small potatoes.
