TRENTON – The Democratic State Committee has agreed to pay a $42,433 penalty to the state over a complaint to the Election Law Enforcement Commission involving in-kind contributions to the 2009 gubernatorial campaign of Jon Corzine.
In a consent order released today, ELEC reported the case involved “six expenditures totaling $227,120.64 as in-kind contributions in aid of the candidacy of gubernatorial candidate Jon S. Corzine in the 2009 general election, in a manner prohibited by the New Jersey Campaign Contributions and Expenditures Reporting Act.”
ELEC stated that in agreeing to this settlement, neither the committee nor its treasurer admit or deny the incidents violate the campaign reporting act.
The Commission said it imposed a joint penalty on the committee and the treasurer, and that the money already has been paid.

"Governor Christie ripped President Obama this summer for failing to carve out some time during a Texas fundraising swing to visit the Mexican border, where the unprecedented flood of immigrant children from Central America had reached a crisis point. ...Yet Christie is not squeezing in a tour of the troubled border during his own three-day trade and diplomatic mission to Mexico, which is set to begin on Wednesday. The governor is planning a series of meetings with Mexican officials, including President Enrique Peña Nieto and the finance and energy ministers." - columnist Charles Stile- The Bergen Record
