A former St. Louis County representative and her political consultant have been fined $6,000 each by the state Ethics Commission because of two flyers mailed out in a 2012 primary campaign.

Elieen McGeoghegan and her consultant, Rory Riddler, were fined because flyers circulated during McGeoghegan’s race with Mary Nichols for a state House seat said they were paid for by a “Mary White.” They were actually paid for by the candidate herself.
