Trump fined for payoffs to Florida’s attorney general

Donald Trump contributed $25,000 to the campaign of Florida attorney general Pam Biondi, after which she dropped the fraud investigation against Trump University and went to work for his campaign.

The contribution was illegal, and not reported accurately on tax records. Officials working for Trump said the whole thing was an honest mistake.

He was fined $2,500 by the IRS, which is a pretty good deal for Trump.
