Vallas was fined $10,000 for campaign violations.

According to Smart News, the Chicago Board of Ethics determined in November that mayoral candidate Paul Vallas breached the rules by accepting a $5,000 gift instead of the $1,500 permitted. Vallas declined to return the $3,500 when they offered to correct it. Vallas was fined $10,500 by the ethics board this month. Three times the additional money he stole.

Mayor Brandon Johnson is also under investigation for giving his campaign money from a lawyer, which is illegal. Unauthorized lobbyists and others can’t give mayors money. So far, so good. The ethics board requested a municipal inspector check. If they find anything wrong, the donor may be fined or sacked from City Hall.
