Former Missouri lawmaker fined $100K by ethics commission
JEFFERSON CITY (AP) - A former Missouri Democratic lawmaker faces a $100,000 fine from the Missouri Ethics Commission for violating campaign finance disclosure laws.
Former House member Steve Webb said Monday that he accepted responsibility for not keeping better books.
The consent order with the ethics commission allows most of the fine to be waived if Webb pays $3,550 within 60 days.
Webb pleaded guilty to seven misdemeanors and one felony charge of theft related to his handling of campaign funds in March. He resigned from the Missouri House in December 2013 after charges were filed.
Ethics commission records say Webb failed to disclose some campaign contributions and spent campaign funds for personal use.
