MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) - Officials say former TV judge Joe Brown is being fined $25 a day for failing to file his most recent campaign finance disclosure statement in the race for Shelby County district attorney.

Drew Rawlins, executive director of the state’s Bureau of Ethics and Campaign Finance, tells The Commercial Appeal (https://bit.ly/QFpaTK ) that Brown has not filed his pre-primary financial disclosure report, which was due April 29.

Brown, a Democrat, is challenging Republican incumbent Amy Weirich. The election is Aug. 7.

The $25-a-day fine began Monday, and will accrue at that rate for 30 days. Rawlins says that if the statement isn’t filed by the end of that period, the fine becomes $10,000.

Brown told the newspaper Monday that he didn’t know whether the forms had been filed.
