San Bernardino County’s campaign finance ordinance must have been meant as a cocktail party joke.
Further review of filings made late Friday evening reveals that five, out of eight, county-level elected officials took campaign contributions over the limit allowed by law.
A total of 14 violations were identified. All misdemeanors under current law.
The maximum allowable contribution per cycle, in 2013, was $4,100. The San Bernardino County Board of Supervisors is currently engaged in an attempt to alter existing law to retroactively forgive the violations listed below.
Here’s the list of offenders:

Muncy, Jr. $ 5,750 Brad Mitzelfelt for Assembly $ 9,000 San Bernardino Public Employees Assn. $ 5,700 Heinz Steinman $ 5,000 S.B. Co.
