- State election officials have levied fines of more than $19,000 against Kim Foxx’s campaign to unseat Cook County State’s Attorney Anita Alvarez.
The Illinois State Board of Elections ruled on Feb. 17 that Foxx violated campaign finance laws by failing to disclose a $25,000 poll paid for by County Board President Toni Preckwinkle a year ago. The election board informed the Foxx campaign Thursday that it would be fined for the violation, records show.
The state board also found Foxx’s campaign committed other infractions, including taking longer than the law allows to disclose 10 contributions it got in September. Among those contributions was a $2,500 check from city Treasurer Kurt Summers, election officials said.
You mean there are actual rules? Like, laws and stuff you have to follow when running for office? And she's violating them already? Amazing.
