Have you ever paid $426 to watch the Angels play?
Montebello City Administrator Richard Torres has — well, sort of.
Torres has been fined $426 by the Fair Political Practices Commission for accepting 12 free tickets on three separate occasions from City Attorney Marco Martinez in 2005, Amanda Baumfeld reports.
Torres summed up the fine to a goof: he reported all the gifts, but just didn’t know there was an imposed limit on the value of the gifts at that time. The tickets were valued at $516, exceeding the 2005 FPPC gift limit by $156.
Apparently, some of the tickets were for the Diamond Club, which seats fans behind home plate.
Angels’ tickets range anywhere from like $10 to as much as $80.
