Reporting mistakes…

Sometimes its just a fine:  Assembly member Patty Lopez made some mistakes in her required reporting and filing requirements for the California Fair Political Practices Commission, failing to report some contributions and using campaign money for personal purposes. That’s worth a $7,500 fine: LA Times. Just a fine because there wasn’t any evidence that the failures were “intentional” – i.e., its just a mistake. Its an interesting contrast with the case of an LA police officer who purposely lied on police reports; he is still on the force: LA Times II
