FEC Fines Obama’s 2008 Campaign $375,000

WASHINGTON (January 3, 2013)—The Federal Election Commission is fining President Barack Obama's 2008 campaign $375,000 for reporting violations related to a set of donations received during the final days of the campaign.

The fines, which are among the largest ever levied against a presidential campaign by the FEC, stem from a series of missing filings for nearly 1,200 contributions totaling nearly $1.9 million.

Campaigns are required to file the reports during the final weeks of the campaign.

Obama campaign spokeswoman Katie Hogan said the 2008 campaign had more than 3 million donors and "the very few outstanding questions have now all been resolved."

Politico first reported the fines.
