WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama’s 2008 campaign has been fined $375,000 by the Federal Election Commission for reporting violations related to a set of donations received during the final days of the campaign.

The fines are among the largest ever levied on a presidential campaign by the FEC and stem from a series of missing filings for nearly 1,200 contributions totaling nearly $1.9 million. Campaigns are required to file the reports during the final weeks of the campaign.

Obama campaign spokeswoman Katie Hogan said the 2008 campaign had more than 3 million donors and “the very few outstanding questions have now all been resolved.”

The fines were first reported by Politico.
