FEC fines Marco Rubio $8,000

The FEC has fined Marco Rubio's campaign $8,000 for "receiving prohibited, excessive, and other impermissible" donations during the 2010 Senate race.

Contributions totaled $210,173 and the campaign "did not refund, reattribute, or redesignate these contributions within the appropriate timeframes," the FEC said in a settlement first reported tonight by Politico.

Documents on the FEC website show a settlement was reached in March but details were just made public. Rubio's sharp rise, from long shot to tea party super star, resulted in waves of donations from across the country.

But the FEC found problems even after the campaign was notified.

There is a truckload of very low hanging fruit, just waiting to be picked clean.
