Orange County Supervisor Andrew Do Faces $12,000 State Fine Over ‘Pay to Play’ Politics

Orange County Supervisor Andrew Do is facing a $12,000 fine for steering lobbyist contracts to his own campaign donors – something the state’s Fair Political Practices Commission says violates state pay-to-play restrictions. 

Commission investigators said it happened while Do was serving on the CalOptima board, the agency that oversees OC’s medical insurance plan for the elderly, poor and needy.

“Do made, participated in making, and attempted to use his official position to influence governmental contracting decisions involving a participant who contributed to his campaign,” reads a complaint from the commission.
