Martha McSally fined $23,000 for 2014 campaign finance violation

Arizona Republican Senator, Martha McSally has agreed to pay a fine of $23,000 to settle campaign finance violations from the 2014 election.

The Federal Election Commission publicly disclosed the details of the fine and settlement last week

for taking excessive campaign contributions from 117 people, in 2014.

FEC auditors found that McSally’s 2014 House campaign took $319,000 in excessive contributions from 117 people.  Campaign contributions were capped at $2,600 per person during that election cycle.

Auditors also found that McSally’s campaign didn’t properly disclose nearly $33,000 from political action committees.

McSally spokeswoman Katie Waldman says the campaign is happy the FEC resolved a matter from four election cycles ago.
