Rhode Island board of elections lowers candidate fine
Leo Medina -- who is running unopposed in the general election for district 12 of the Rhode Island House of Representatives -- allegedly failed to file 27 campaign finance reports dating back to 2004.
The fine must be paid within 60 days or it will escalate to $11,000.
Medina is also under investigation for acting as an attorney without a license and alleged witness intimidation.
There are no other candidates running for election to District 12. Thus, barring unforeseen circumstances, Medina is guaranteed election on November 2.
