CalPERS Baord Member in hot water again for campaign finance violations

CalPERS Board member Priya Mathur, a repeat offender when it comes to campaign finance violations, is facing a $4,000 fine from the Fair Political Practices Commission for her latest transgression.

Aren’t these people supposed to be fiscally responsible? But we digress…

The agency’s staff had initially proposed a $1,000 fine for Mathur’s most recent failure to file campaign finance statements on time. But because of her past track record, commissioners decided a stiffer penalty of $4,000 was in order.

Mathur has already been fined a total of $13,000 by the FPPC for a host of campaign finance violations over the past few years. Among the items on her rap sheet: late filing of campaign documents and conflict-of-interest statements. After she was fined in 2010, the CalPERS board punished her by removing her as chairwoman of the health benefits committee and suspending her from traveling on CalPERS business.

No word on whether she has regained access to that company credit card…
