FEC Fines Bachmann $8,000 for 2010 Campaign Finance Violations

Rep. Michele Bachmann’s (R-Minn.) campaign committee has signed a conciliation agreement with the Federal Election Commission calling for a $8,000 civil penalty for campaign finance violations in her 2010 Congressional campaign.

The Bachmann for Congress committee failed to disclose accurately $208,502 in receipts and $206,499 in disbursements covering five reporting periods in 2009 and 2010. The committee contends it discovered these problems in a self-initiated examination of its records. The committee has since filed amended reports for those periods. View conciliation agreement in MUR 6709.
