Arnold Schwarzenegger California Governor

March 8, 2012 by staff 

Arnold Schwarzenegger California Governor, Former Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger has agreed to pay $30,000 to the California Fair Political Practices Commission to settle a nearly three-year-old complaint by the campaign finance watchdog agency.

The commission says Schwarzenegger violated state campaign laws by spending $1.1 million from a ballot measure campaign to advocate for his position on the state budget. The panel will consider the settlement at its March 15 meeting.

The Republican governor, who left office last year, spent the money on advertising during a dispute with Democrats in July 2009.

California Democratic Party Chairman John Burton, former president pro tem of the state Senate, filed the complaint against Schwarzenegger.

“We settled the case totally for financial reasons,” Schwarzenegger spokesman Adam Mendelsohn said in a statement. “The governor was no longer in office and rather than spend tens or even hundreds of thousands of dollars on a long legal fight, we chose to settle.”
