State Regulators Say Ex-Oakland Mayoral Candidate Marcie Hodge Broke Election Laws

Investigators for the state’s political watchdog agency have concluded that former Peralta colleges trustee Marcie Hodge violated election laws during her campaign for mayor of Oakland in 2010. Gary Winuk, chief of enforcement for the California Fair Political Practices Commission (FPPC), also stated in public records filed with the FPPC that Hodge and her mother, Yvonne Hodge, admitted to violating the law and agreed to pay fines totaling $5,000 to the state. The state’s investigation was prompted by news reports (presumably by the Express and other news media) that Hodge had repeatedly failed to disclose her donors prior to the 2010 November election. The Express published several reports about Hodge’s actions during and after the mayoral campaign.
