Well it looks like you just can’t trust anyone anymore: City Councilwoman and Philebs favorite name-haver Blondell Reynolds Brown (or BRB) has been hit with more than $20,000 in fines for ethics violations.
According to CBS3, BRB reached a settlement agreement with the ethics board, settling campaign finance violations going back to 2010. Ethics board exec Shane Creamer (yep) told CBS these include “reporting violations, excess contributions received by her campaign committee, and improper handling of contributions,” which, while disappointing, is very City Council of her. Reynolds will pay $20,000 in fines and another $20,000 in restitution. As our mothers would say, “Was it worth it?,” as BRB mumbles “No” and kicks her feet at the ground.
