Jon Bruning Fined $19K by Federal Election Commission

Jon-BruningNebraska Attorney General Jon Bruning has been fined $19,000 by the Federal Election Commission for violating campaign finance laws during his run for U.S. Senate last year.

The FEC determined Bruning did not file candidacy paperwork in a timely manner for his run for U.S. Senate in 2012, among other violations. Bruning agreed to a settlement with the FEC last month.

The fine stems from a complaint filed against Bruning by the Nebraska Democratic Party shortly after Bruning announced he was launching an exploratory committee for a Senate run in late 2010.

Bruning was defeated in the Republican primary in May 2012 by then-state Sen. Deb Fischer, who went on to win the election.

    Deb Fischer has already stabbed us in the back by voting for the internet sales tax bill. Didn’t take the b*tch long! At least I voted for the true Conservative in Bruning. Fischer is a fraud like the rest of them.

    Leave it to the democraps to do something like this. They (the democraps) do this type of thing all the time and get away with it. When they get caught they cry and moan and deny everything. Just like the President “thing” we have now. They have the theory: Don`t do as I do but do as I say.
