AG sues Lawrence mayor, seeks campaign report, fine

Attorney General Martha Coakley sued Lawrence Mayor William ­Lantigua Wednesday for failing to file a 2011 campaign finance report or pay daily fines imposed by the state Office of Campaign and Political ­Finance.

Lantigua, who has said he plans to run for reelection in 2013, filed no campaign reports at all in 2011, triggering a fine that has grown by $25 a day since the deadline on Jan. 20, 2012. He now owes $5,000, the maximum fine possible.
