The New York Sun broke a story today that a fundraising committee Sen. Clinton employed in 2000 will pay a $35,000 civil penalty admitting they failed to report $721,895 raised from a California celebrity gala to the federal government. A complaint was originally filed in 2001 by entrepreneur Peter Paul who financed the fundraising concert that entertained celebrities in efforts to raise cash for her 2000 election. Attorney for the committee, Marc Elias, said the fine ends all action on the matter. The senator’s spokesmen have said she is unavailable for comment.
