SACRAMENTO, CALIF. Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger has agreed to pay a $200,200 fine for campaign finance violations during last year's special election campaign - the second largest such fine in state history.
According to a settlement with the Fair Political Practices Commission, Schwarzenegger's California Recovery Team failed to file timely reports of $25.6 million in expenditures in the final months of its special election campaign in support of four ballot initiatives.
The fine - $1,400 each for 143 violations - is second only to the $263,000 Lt. Gov. Cruz Bustamante paid in 2004.
