Region : Campbell Settlement Near

The state attorney general's office is close to a settlement with the wife of former state Sen. William Campbell that would force her firm to repay at least $10,000 for consulting services to her husband's annual women's conferences.

Margene Campbell or her firm will have to reimburse the amount to the Campbell's Conference on Women because independent studies show the nonprofit entity was overcharged for the consulting work, said Carole Ann Kornblum, assistant attorney general in charge of the charitable trust division.

Kornblum declined to specify the amount, but confirmed that it is more than $10,000.

Reached earlier this week, Campbell, who has since left office to become president of the California Manufacturers Assn., declined comment on the proposed settlement.
