East Bay Politician Gets Fined

The state Fair Political Practices Commission has fined Emeryville Vice Mayor Ken Bukowski $15,500 for violating California campaign finance rules. According to the Trib, the FPPC concluded that Bukowski used campaign funds for personal use. In 2008, he wrote checks totaling $2,300 to himself from his campaign account, and another $1,340 were made out to “cash.” It is illegal for a politician to use campaign donations to enrich himself.
