Political reform candidate fined over disclosure
June 20, 2014, 05:00 AM The Associated Press

SACRAMENTO — A defeated candidate for secretary of state who offered himself to voters as California’s “reformer-in-chief” has been fined for failing to disclose a political gift.

The Fair Political Practices Commission on Thursday approved a $200 fine against Dan Schnur, who failed to advance in the June 3 primary. He did not report $1,018 in travel expenses for giving a speech before a conservative group.

The agency says that was a gift that should have been noted on Schnur’s statement of economic interest.

Schnur, who once led the commission that penalized him, calls the fine “totally appropriate.” He said he overlooked the expenses from the speech when preparing his financial report.

Schnur finished fourth in a crowded race for secretary of state, the office that oversees elections and campaign fundraising.
