Fall River Lawmaker Fined $20,000

 

 A lawmaker from Fall River has agreed to pay a $20,000 fine for violations of state campaign finance rules.
 
    The Massachusetts Office of Campaign and Political Finance said state Rep. Alan Silvia’s campaign committee failed to comply with several requirements of the law in 2012.

Among them was filing inaccurate or incomplete campaign finance reports, accepting personal contributions that exceeded limits, disguising the source of donations and depositing corporate contributions that are prohibited under state campaign finance law.
 
    Silvia voluntarily signed a disposition agreement that requires him to pay $20,000 to the state’s general fund and file additional campaign finance records with OCPF.
 
    The agreement says Silvia cooperated fully with the investigation and the Democrat will not face any criminal charges. (Associated Press)
