Here’s my story today on the $17,000 fine, which Belinda Stewart says is unfair and one of her pursuers, Sen. Mike Carrell, says is too lenient.

Stewart can ask the Executive Ethics Board to reconsider the fine, or she can appeal to superior court. Carrell is asking the Department of Corrections to fire Stewart.
