    The District of Columbia's Office of Campaign Finance has fined Council member Yvette Alexander $4,000 for violations related to her constituent service fund.

    The office found that Alexander paid for a campaign robo-call with constituent service money. It also found that the fund failed to report $4,700 in expenditures. A $2,000 fine was issued for each violation.

    Otherwise, a 29-page order from the OCF clears Alexander of the allegations contained in a complaint against her. The complaint accused the Ward 7 Democrat of, among other things, inappropriate use of constituent service funds; accepting a reduced rental rate for her constituent service office to influence government action; and accepting excessive campaign contributions. The OCF found no merit to any of those accusations.

    A spokeswoman said Alexander has no comment on the findings.
