Virginia Fields Fined $70K

The city Campaign Finance Board just announced its latest round of fines, with Virginia Fields leading the pack.

Fields’ 2005 mayoral campaign was fined $70,567, mostly for not responding to a draft audit in a timely fashion (112 days late!). She was also fined $5,727 for spending $57,272 on “non-campaign related and impermissible post-election expenditures.”

Other notable fines: Adolfo Carrion’s 2005 campaign for Bronx Borough President was fined $6,875, mostly for accepting over-the-limit contributions. Eric Gioia was fined $5,050, mostly for the same reason.
