LOS ANGELES (AP) - A failed Los Angeles City Council candidate and his campaign treasurer have been fined nearly $43,000 for violations including failing to keep accurate records and faking documents that were supposed to back up their spending.

Navraj Singh campaigned in 2011 to represent a northwestern portion of the San Fernando Valley, running for the seat that was ultimately won by Mitch Englander. Singh’s campaign committee raised more than $96,000, including $47,300 in public matching funds.

The Los Angeles Times reported Tuesday (https://lat.ms/1AcSMev ) that a routine Ethics Commission audit prompted a probe. Investigators found Singh and treasurer Timothy Davis lacked records that would enable the city to determine whether some of the spending was proper.

Singh did not respond to phone calls seeking comment.
