HIGHLAND — A political action committee set on throwing San Bernardino County District Attorney Mike Ramos out of elected office has launched its first political mailer in the contest.

The committee, Business Leaders for Fair and Ethical Government Supporting Anderson & Opposing Ramos 2018, has hit the four-term incumbent for breaking state law multiple times, while prosecuting other for similar acts.

In 2009, Ramos was fined by the California Fair Political Practices Commission for failing to properly disclose $10,000 he paid to his wife from money paid to his campaign by donors.

In both 2011 and 2015, Ramos was fined a total of $7,500 collectively for not properly itemizing and disclosing charges on his campaign credit card.
