ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — A state campaign finance board has penalized Minneapolis Mayor R.T. Rybak for certain contributions from lobbyists during his 2010 run for governor.

State law prohibits candidates for state office from accepting contributions from lobbyists during a legislative session. Rybak accepted three contributions of $250 each from lobbyists in April 2010 that were not returned within the permitted 60-day period.

Rybak was ordered by the state to pay a $750 fine and to fully repay the lobbyists in the next 30 days. The lobbyists were also fined the amount of their contributions.
