Officials: Lawmaker hasn’t paid $4,500 fine levied in 2009

Hartford

The Connecticut attorney general’s office is threatening to take a state lawmaker to court for failing to pay a 10-year-old $4,500 fine for election law violations.

A spokeswoman for Democratic Attorney General William Tong says his office recently reissued a demand for payment by Democratic Hartford Rep. Minnie Gonzalez.

Messages seeking comment were left for Gonzalez, her lawyer and an aide Wednesday.

Gonzalez was fined $4,500 by the State Elections Enforcement Commission in 2009 for improperly being present when four voters filled out absentee ballots for the 2006 election. Gonzalez appealed the fine, but the state Appellate Court upheld it 2013.

The commission also is investigating complaints against Gonzalez’s campaign relating to last November’s election.
