JamesRamosThis post was modified on February 3, 2014, to add 3rd District Supervisor, James Ramos, to the campaign finance violation list for the February 2013 contribution by Majestic Realty.

Original post:

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:
