The state Fair Political Practices Commission is looking to fine former State Senate candidate Long K. Pham $400 for failing to file campaign statements on time.

Pham ran as a Republican for the 34th State Senate district last year against Democrat Jose Solorio and Republican Janet Nguyen, finishing third in the June primary with 14.7% of the vote.

Just ahead of the election, Pham attempted to submit a petition to recall State Sen. Janet Nguyen, who was then a county supervisor.

Pham also ran in 2012 for the 72nd State Assembly.

According to an agenda report, Pham failed to file statements for the period of May 18 through June 30, 2014.

The penalty still needs to be approved by the FPPC Commission at its February 19 meeting.
