Loan From Father

The Florida Supreme Court has imposed a public reprimand and a $5,000 fine on a judge for misconduct in a campaign for a circuit court judgeship. The judge had listing a campaign contribution as a loan from herself when it in fact was from her father. The father's contribution had violated campaign contribution limits. The judge filed an amended form shortly after the election.

The court concluded that the misconduct was less serious than in two prior cases where more severe sanctions were imposed. (Mike Frisch)
