Arizona Republic:  “A state administrative law judge has upheld Scottsdale’s assertion that the Scottsdale Area Chamber of Commerce should pay penalties for illegally attempting to influence city elections through a series of ads it financed last year.  The judge agreed with the Scottsdale City Attorney’s Office decision to impose a civil penalty on the chamber for distributing mailers and airing television advertisements before the September 2008 city election without filing as a political action committee.”
