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.

The Commission said it imposed a joint penalty on the committee and the treasurer, and that the money already has been paid.
