FPPC Fines Outgoing Mayor Lori Pfeiler
Today’s North County Times reports that Escondido’s outgoing mayor, Lori Holt Pfeiler has been fined by the Fair Political Practices Commission for underestimating the cost of a trip she took last year on the private jet of San Diego Chargers owner Dean Spanos.
Her financial report showed she estimated the trip at a value of $504, while the FPPC pegged it at a whopping $27,685!
Pfeiler disagrees with the ruling, but the cost to fight it in court would far exceed the $200 fine. The city reimbursed the Palomar Pomerado Health Foundation, which received the trip as a donation from the Chargers.
