LANSING, Mich. -- A campaign committee related to U.S. Rep. Mark Schauer says it will pay a $6,000 fine in a settlement with Michigan election officials over fundraising in 2006 state Senate races.
The Democrat from Battle Creek's state Senate campaign committee says it signed the agreement Friday. Michigan's Senate Democratic Fund political action committee will return $202,000 to Schauer's campaign and the money will be paid to the state.
The contribution was challenged by Senate Republicans in 2006. Republicans said Schauer's contribution to the political action committee exceeded the annual $20,000-per-person limit.
A Secretary of State spokeswoman said the state has not yet received the signed agreement or the money and won't consider the case closed until all parties sign off.
