Assembly aide Sean MacNeil will be fined $2,000 for failing to report income received in 2007 from the campaign committee of former Democratic state Sen. Pat Wiggins, according to the Fair Political Practices Commission.
MacNeil was chief of staff to the Santa Rosa Democrat when the violation occurred and currently serves in the same capacity for Assemblyman Michael Allen, D-Santa Rosa, the FPPC said.
The agency is scheduled to approve the fine Feb. 10 as part of a stipulated agreement with MacNeil.
The fine amounts to the same sum that MacNeil received in March 2007 from Wiggins' Senate campaign committee and failed to report on that year's required statement of economic interest, according to the FPPC.
Six years ago, MacNeil was fined $4,000 by the watchdog agency for signing two of Wiggins' financial disclosure statements when he was not authorized to do so.
