Among the items on the May 25, 2017 agenda of the California Fair Political Practices Commission is a proposed $100 fine for “failure to disclose her pro-rata share of her spouse’s income on her Candidate Statement of Economic Interests, in violation of Government Code Section 87207” in her candidate Form 700 Statement of Economic Interests filed on August 12, 2016.
There’s no staff report explaining who filed the complaint, when it was filed, etc. Simply a copy of the stipulation, decision and order in which Barnes cops to the violation and agrees to pay the penalty. A $100 fine is the FPPC equivalent of a fix-it ticket.
The Form 700 Barnes’ filed January 9, 2017 following being sworn in as a councilmember reports four sources of income for her husband, who is apparently a television camera operator: Fox Sports West, Pettigrew Crewing, LDM Worldwide and Disney Worldwide Services – ABC Company. The latter would explain why Barnes recuses herself from Disney-related votes.
