The San Diego Ethics Commission fined a lobbying firm run by political consultant Art Castañares $1,000 for failing to file disclosure reports on time.
The firm, Cornerstone Strategies, filed one disclosure report nearly one year late. Another was filed on an outdated form and was incomplete.
Several factors weighed against the firm in determining the fine, including that Castañares paid a $4,500 fine in 2007 for registering late as a lobbyist and failing to file disclosure reports on time.
