Campaign Consultant Enforcement

Violations of the Campaign Consultant Ordinance are subject to penalties up to three times the amount not reported or $5,000 per violation, whichever is greater.

Late Fees

Late filed reports are also subject to late filing fees.  If a campaign consultant does not file the required disclosure reports on time, the Ethics Commission will impose a late filing fee of $50 per day until the report is filed.  The late filing fee increases to $100 per day during the 30 days before or after an election.  In limited circumstances, the Ethics Commission may reduce or waive this fine.
