GOP Maes pays fine for campaign finance violations

DENVER — Republican gubernatorial candidate Dan Maes has paid a $17,500 fine for campaign finance violations.

The secretary of state’s office says it received a check from Maes by Thursday’s deadline.

Maes agreed to the fine to settle a lawsuit filed by Christopher Klitzke of Grand Junction citing campaign finance irregularities in Maes’ reports.

They included a claim that Maes accepted prohibited corporate contributions totaling $570, and claiming $44,000 in travel expenses claiming he traveled 90,000 miles.

Maes says the campaign regrets getting tripped up in the complexities of campaign finance, and it has met its responsibilities with the secretary of state.
