Advertisements [?]
April 23, 2004 | WASHINGTON (AP) -- The campaign manager and fund-raising committee for a California Republican have agreed to pay $84,000 in civil penalties for sending out letters pretending to be Democrats during a 1998 congressional campaign, the Federal Election Commission said.

Adrian Plesha, manager of Charles Ball's campaign, agreed to pay a $60,000 fine and Ball's campaign committee agreed to pay $24,000. Plesha also pleaded guilty to making false statements to the FEC and was sentenced to three years probation, fined another $5,000 and ordered to perform 160 hours of community service.
