Lieberman Slapped with $50,000 Fine for Campaign Violation
From The Hill:
According to the Federal Election Commission, Lieberman’s 2006 reelection campaign and its treasurer, Lynn Fusco, made payments to get-out-the-vote canvassers of more than $100 in cash. Under FEC law, disbursements to individuals over $100 must be made in check form.
The committee also failed to accurately document individuals it paid $200 or more over the course the year, another FEC requirement.
And Lieberman’s campaign misreported payments to two consultants as well as a $75,000 disbursement.
Oddly, the FEC did not say that Leiberman had done anything wrong.
