Mormon Church pays fine in Prop 8 case
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints will pay a $5,000 fine for not reporting non-monetary contributions in support of Proposition 8, which banned same-sex marriage in California.
The California Fair Political Practices Commission concluded the church "failed to timely report making late non-monetary contributions totaling $36,928" during the November 2008 election. It assessed a penalty of $5,539.
Here's a link to a full background statement by the LDS.
