Hannemann camp fined for violations

Former Mayor Mufi Hannemann’s campaign for governor has agreed to pay a $225 fine and a campaign worker will pay a $100 fine related to improper notice for a Pittsburgh fundraising event in June.

Hannemann’s campaign will pay the $225 penalty for failure to amend an organizational report, failure to deposit two contributions within seven days, failure to report a loan and filing an improper disclaimer for the fundraiser. The loan involved expenses paid by a former transit company executive who organized the event.

Christine Camp, who works for Hannemann, will pay the $100 for filing a late notice for the fundraiser with an incorrect date. The campaign also acknowledged that it was not the candidate’s signature on the notice. The former mayor had signed a separate form that was not filed.

State law requires candidates to file notices with the state Campaign Spending Commission before fundraisers are held. The commission unanimously agreed yesterday to accept the conciliation agreements with Hannemann’s campaign and with Camp.

Hannemann has said he would not accept donations collected at the Pittsburgh fundraiser because of questions surrounding the notice.

Earlier this year, former U.S. Rep. Neil Abercrombie’s campaign for governor agreed to pay a $50 fine for filing a late notice for a fundraiser.
