The Mormon Church will be fined $5,538 for failing to report some $37,000 worth of contributions in their effort to pass Prop 8, which banned gay marriage in 2008. The church said they "unintentionally failed to file daily reports detailing approximately $37,000 in non-monetary contributions," according to their website, via the LA Times. "The amount of contributions not reported represented the cost of staff time spent by church employees on activities to help the Yes on 8 committee during the final two weeks of the election."

The Fair Political Practices Commission will meet on Thursday and will discuss the fine.
