Another ding on the Marco Rubio for VP bandwagon. Alex Leary reports:
The $8,000 fine the FEC slapped Sen. Marco Rubio with was not his campaign’s first violation. In January, the campaign paid a $1,360 fine for failing to disclose a number of campaign contributions made within 48 hours of the 2010 general election.
The FEC had said Rubio failed to disclose 36 contributions totaling $92,440 and proposed a $9,904 fine. But the campaign contested that, and the FEC agreed only six contributions were not disclosed as required. (Those contributions are in the jump.)
