LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - The Arkansas Ethics Commission has fined and issued a letter of caution to a Libertarian candidate for the state House after investigating a complaint that he did not file a closing campaign finance report with the state.

The commission entered an order against Rodger Paxton on Tuesday that requires him to file the report within 10 days. It also fined him $250 and issued him a letter of caution.

Paxton did not immediately return a phone message Wednesday. A search of the secretary of state’s website shows Paxton did not file any campaign finance reports for the 2014 election. He lost to incumbent Democratic Rep. Deborah Ferguson.

The commission’s letter says Paxton failed to respond to several notices about the reporting and did not attend a hearing held last Friday.
