A gun-control group and its political action committee have paid a $12,000 fine to settle a campaign-finance case from the 2000 election.
At issue were ads and endorsements by the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence and its Voter Education Fund involving various Democratic candidates, the Associated Press reports.
The American Conservative Union, in a complaint with the Federal Election Commission, accused the Brady organizations of making illegal corporate contributions to the Democrats' campaigns.
The FEC disclosed the outcome of the case yesterday.
