The city’s Ethics Commission voted Tuesday to impose $20,000 in fines on a Port of Los Angeles shipping company and two top executives who admitted engaging in campaign money laundering practices that benefited three candidates.

Trans Pacific Container Service Corp. exceeded the city’s campaign contribution limit by reimbursing employees who wrote checks to the 2005 reelection campaign of former Mayor James K. Hahn, the 2005 reelection campaign of City Atty. Rocky Delgadillo and the 2003 campaign of Councilman Tony Cardenas, according to the panel.
