Already facing criminal charges in a separate case, campaign treasurer Kinde Durkee was fined Thursday by the state’s ethics watchdog agency for failing to properly report $76,000 in spending by the unsuccessful Assembly campaign of Stuart Waldman in 2008.
The state Fair Political Practices Commission approved $8,000 in fines against Durkee and Waldman, who is now president of the Valley Industry and Commerce Assn. in Los Angeles.
The penalty was also for a charge that Waldman failed to deposit personal funds in a campaign bank account before his committee incurred expenses and that he and Durkee failed to properly report vendor information for about $173,013 in payments. L.A. TIMES
