Sheriff Fined For Appearing In Political Ad

Posted: Updated:


    A Cowlitz County Sheriff is being slapped with a fine for appearing in a political ad.

    The Public Disclosure Commission fined Sheriff Mark Nelson $250.

    Nelson was one of several public officials who appeared in commercials opposing Initiative 1183, which would have allowed hard alcohol to be sold in Washington grocery stores.

    However, the support didn't help the cause because the bill passed.

    Public officials are allowed to be in election commercials, but Nelson allowed his unmarked patrol car to be in the commercial and he wore a jacket purchased by the sheriff's office.
