PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - Former Rhode Island House Speaker Gordon Fox has been hit with a campaign finance violation for failing to file his latest campaign finance report on time.

Richard Thornton of the Board of Elections’ campaign finance division says on Tuesday that Fox did not file his first quarter report by midnight on April 30.

The FBI and IRS raided Fox’s home and Statehouse office on March 21. On the same day, they contacted the Board of Elections about Fox. Thornton says they have not been in touch since then.

Federal authorities won’t say what they are investigating.

Fox says he plans to file, but that he’s had a lot on his mind.

Thornton says it’s a $25 fine for the late filing. Eventually, late filings accrue a $2 fine per day.
