State Fines Illinois Auditor General 5K

(Springfield, IL)  —  The Illinois Auditor General is facing a five-thousand-dollar fine by the state Board of Elections.  The board voted yesterday to penalize Frank Mautino for failing to provide information during a probe into the spending of his former legislative campaign committee.  The investigation was launched last year after over 200-thousand-dollars in campaign funds were spent on fuel and car repairs over 16 years.
