O.C. Supervisor Facing FPPC Fine

The Fair Political Practices Commission will fine Orange County Supervisor Todd Spitzer $1,258 for failing to report nearly two dozen campaign expenditures on time last year.

The expenditures -- 23 in all -- added up to more than $6,000. But that appears to be the end of the line. There are no open investigations into the supervisor, the FPPC said. That indicates that some of the more serious allegations against the supervisor have been put to rest.

Spitzer’s campaign treasurer Lysa Ray has accepted blame for the delinquent disclosures, calling it a clerical mistake on her part.

“Supervisor Spitzer should not accept any liability for my error,” said Ray

Spitzer is currently challenging Tony Rackauckus for Orange County District Attorney. Just one month ago, Rackauckus was fined $21,000 for failing to file state-mandated forms on time
