SHREVEPORT, La. (KSLA) - Shreveport Mayor Adrian Perkins is one of four Northwest Louisiana politicians who face campaign finance penalties.

He and District A Shreveport Councilman Willie Bradford, District 12 Caddo Commissioner Louis Johnson and District E Minden Councilwoman Pamela T. “Pam” Bloxom each ran afoul of campaign finance laws by filing one or more finance disclosure reports late, according to the Louisiana Board of Ethics.

All four elected officials are asking the panel to waive their fines.

Johnson could be fined as mush as $4,000 for allegedly filing four reports late during his 2017 commission race. He also faces a $2,000 civil penalty for filing an inaccurate campaign finance report, according to state records.

Meanwhile, Perkins faces a fine of $420 for filing one of his required finance reports one week late.

Bradford is looking at a $360 penalty for filing a special campaign finance report nine days late.

And Bloxom allegedly filed two finance reports late. The possible fines total $400.
