SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – Sacramento Mayor Kevin Johnson has been fined $37,500 for failing to properly report more than $3.5 million in donations he solicited for non-profits over the past four years.

The California Fair Political Practice Commission announced the fine Monday. Johnson has agreed to pay it, citing an administration lapse in not reporting the donations in the required 30-day window.

“While I appreciate acknowledgment in the FPPC report that this error was an unintentional administrative lapse related to efforts to raise resources for charities and civic causes, I take full responsibility,” the mayor said in a statement. “At my direction, my administration has improved training and tracking procedures to ensure we are fully compliant moving forward.”

The full FPPC board has to approve the fine, which it’s scheduled to do next week in its meeting in San Diego.

The donations were made to the city’s arena task force and Johnson’s education initiatives.
