The Texas Ethics Commission has fined another Big Spring City Councilman and it all involves taking illegal campaign contributions.
Marcus Fernandez has been fined $200. He's the second councilman to get that penalty. Glen Carrigan was previously fined by the Texas Ethics Commission.
A complaint was filed against both of them by a Big Spring resident.
The two were accused of illegally taking campaign contributions from two corporations during their 2011 campaign.
Both returned the money, which was more than a little more than $1,000 to be in compliance with state law.
Those contributions came from Quad A Incorporated and Hydro Dynamics.
A complaint against Mayor Tommy Duncan was also filed but that has not yet been resolved yet by the Texas Ethics Commission.
A grand jury cleared all three men of any wrongdoing.
The councilmen still face a civil lawsuit by two former Big Spring councilwomen who lost the race to them.
