RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - The State Board of Elections is considering whether to fine former Del. Phil Hamilton for delays in submitting campaign finance reports.
The board's staff has recommended a $350 fine against Hamilton for the late reports and a delay in changing his statement of organization. The board plans to hold a hearing Monday.
The Daily Press reports that Hamilton sent a letter to elections officials attributing the delays to reconciling a discrepancy between two reports he had filed. He blamed the discrepancy on missing expenditures, math errors and other problems.
The Republican from Newport News resigned in November amid investigations of his role in funding a center at Old Dominion University, then getting a job there.
