The city's Campaign Finance Board said Councilman Mathieu Eugene racked up 29 violations. Those include failing to provide his bank statements, accepting five corporate contributions and using campaign funds for non-campaign related expenses.
Eugene ran three winning campaigns in 2007. He first ran in a special election in February, but another was held that April because of uncertainty about when had moved into Brooklyn's 40th district.
His third campaign was for the general election in November.
