D.C. Council member Charlene Drew Jarvis (D-Ward 4) has been fined $1,000 by the D.C. Office of Campaign Finance for failing to correctly file a financial report on her unsuccessful 1982 mayoral campaign and list all the campaign's officers.
Albert H. Turkus, Jarvis' attorney, said yesterday that Jarvis probably would appeal the fine.
Keith Vance, director of the campaign office, previously recommended that the D.C. Board of Elections and Ethics fine Jarvis and several of her campaign officials $31,000 for alleged violations during her 1982 campaign and her 1984 reelection campaign. He has also asked the board to refer the cases to the U.S. attorney's office for possible criminal prosecution.
The $1,000 fine stems from Jarvis' alleged failure to file a Jan. 31 report signed by a campaign treasurer and to amend a statement of organization to show the campaign's current officers. Jarvis' report was signed by Woodrow Boggs, her campaign manager, instead of by a treasurer, campaign finance officials said.
Jarvis paid a $500 fine in May for failing to file the January report on time, although she objected to the fine as unwarranted.
Vance has also reimposed a $500 fine resulting from Jarvis' alleged failure to provide information about two fund-raising groups. Vance vacated the fine last week because a document issued by his office cited the wrong charge.
