Campaign Finance Board Fines Liz Crowley

City Council Member Liz Crowley’s campaign was fined $1,325 for taking too much money from donors, and for taking money from corporate donors, which is barred by law.

The fine was levied today by the city Campaign Finance Board, an entity that has previously found fault with how Crowley, a Democrat from Middle Village, has raised money.

After a 2001 race, Crowley was hit with more than $80,000 in fines for “fund-raising irregularities.”
