SAN DIEGO (AP) — A political action committee formed by opponents of a former San Diego city councilman has been fined $7,500 for violating campaign disclosure laws.
Conservatives for Gay Rights Supporting Carl DeMaio made calls and distributed leaflets stating that DeMaio is gay. The leaflets showed him standing near a man dressed in drag.
DeMaio, an openly gay Republican, lost last year's San Diego mayoral race to Democrat Bob Filner, who recently resigned following a sexual harassment scandal.
The PAC actually had ties to the Democratic party and Filner. But the San Diego Ethics Commission said Friday it found no evidence Filner knew of the group's actions.
The PAC was fined for not supplying a valid address or keeping records of expenditures.
DeMaio is now running for Congress.
