Louisiana: Failed backers of Gov and House Speaker recall face $1,000 fines for failing to file campaign finance report

The leaders of a failed recall petition drive against Governor Bobby Jindal and House Speaker Chuck Kleckley are facing $1000 fines for failing to file a campaign finance report within 45 days (they filed 56 days late).

Kleckley has asked that the ethics board that the fines against Calcasieu Parish public school teachers Angie Bonvillian and Brenda Romero, be waved. The two petitioners claim that they didn't know about the law.

The Republican Party spent over $100,000 combating the Kleckley recall effort, according to disclosure reports filed by the party.
