Coakley pays $24,000 to settle campaign violations
Question of the Day
BOSTON (AP) - Attorney General Martha Coakley’s campaign committee has agreed to pay nearly $18,000 to charity as part of an agreement with campaign regulators over payments made with federal committee funds.
Coakley, who is running for the Democratic nomination for Massachusetts governor, also agreed to pay $6,000 to the state to cover the cost of the review.
The Office of Campaign and Political Finance concluded Coakley’s state committee violated campaign finance law when her former U.S. Senate committee paid for services that should have been covered by Coakley’s state committee.
Coakley ran for U.S. Senate in 2010 and lost.
Under Massachusetts law, federal committees are prohibited from providing anything of value to state committees.
The issues relate to payments Coakley made for database services and to attend the 2012 Democratic National Convention.
