LAS VEGAS (AP) - The state is fining seven Democrats in the
Nevada Assembly $150 each for violating campaign finance laws.

The Las Vegas Sun reported Thursday that the Democrats did not report all of their campaign expenses in violation of state law.

They include Assembly Majority Leader Marcus Conklin and
Assembly members Marilyn Dondero-Loop, Peggy Pierce, Lucy Flores, David Bobzien, Skip Daly and Debbie Smith.

The Sun reports that the lawmakers were told by their private
lawyer that they only had to report expenses directly related to
their election efforts.

But state law requires the reporting of all money spent from a
campaign fund.

In all, the lawmakers did not report nearly $45,000 in expenses.

The unreported expenses went toward rent in Carson City,
electronics, house cleaning and meals, among other things.
