Capitol Alert

The latest on California politics and government

The Fair Political Practices Commission said Thursday that it won't stop its new practice of publishing warning letters to its Web site.

The state's political watchdog agency announced late last month that it would post the letters, which are sent in cases where the commission rules that the subject violated state campaign laws, but decides not to issue a fine.

Since posting the letters, the commission has received calls to take the letters down from parties who say it was unfair to post the letters without prior notice and that some letters incorrectly stated that subjects violated state law when they did not.
