Dems Violate State Law-Fined over Contributions

After pouring more than $1.3 million into Virginia's 2009 race for governor last week, the Democratic Governors Association faces the prospect of a $2,500 fine Thursday for failing to identify its contributors on time.
DGA will be fined $2,500 for violating a state law that requires out-of-state political organizations to list their donors when they make contributions to candidates or political committees in Virginia races, said David Allen, campaign finance manager for the State Board of Elections.
The Washington-based DGA made recent contributions of $850,000 and $505,000 to Common Sense Virginia, a Virginia PAC set up to hound uncontested Republican gubernatorial candidate Bob McDonnell while three Democrats fight toward their June 9 primary.
But DGA has not updated the list of its own contributors since April 15. decided late Tuesday to submit a new list of donors who have given to DGA through Monday.
