The California Fair Political Practices Commission fined the Santa Barbara County Lincoln Club and its treasurer Cory Bantilan — who also serves as chief of staff for 5th District Supervisor Steve Lavagnino — for failing to file campaign statements on time. This is the second time the FPPC has brought an action against this Lincoln Club for not filing the statements in a timely manner. They’re supposed to be submitted semi-annually. This time around, the FPPC fined the group — a countywide Republican club — $6,000. Said Bantilan: “I made a mistake by filing late and paid for it. The club hasn’t been active for quite some time, and I am currently in the process of closing the account.”

Correction: This article has been amended to reflect the fact that the Santa Barbara Lincoln Club is a countywide club, not just North County-based, as originally reported.

Cory should skip the council and challenge Maldo for the governor slot. Show us you have some cajones and aren't just another bean counter getting along to move up the chain.
