    Judge recommends $58k in fines for David Rivera

    News Service of Florida:

    An administrative law judge Thursday said former state House budget chief David Rivera should pay nearly $58,000 in fines and restitution in a long-running ethics case. Judge W. David Watkins found last year that Rivera, R-Miami, improperly received state travel reimbursements and did not adequately disclose financial information.

The recommendation will go back to the ethics commission, which will issue a final order about whether Rivera violated state laws. The ultimate decision about penalties would be made by the House speaker, Watkins' ruling said. The alleged ethics violations stem from Rivera's time in the state House, where he served from 2002 to 2010, including two years as appropriations chairman. He was then elected to Congress but lost a bid for another term in 2012 amid widespread questions about ethical and financial issues....
