Mayor Fines Himself for Promoting Xango

Mayor fines himself for personal e-mail

NEWARK, Ohio - The mayor of this central Ohio city has fined himself $368 for sending an e-mail that promoted his son's part-time beverage business to city workers.

Mayor Bruce Bain wrote to 15 city employees on June 9 recommending they become involved in selling Xango, which is marketed as a health drink.

"I violated the computer use policy I helped write," Bain said at a news conference on Thursday. "You have to use the computer only for city business. How can I say to a city employee, 'Don't do that,' if I do it?"

Bain said he realized the mistake on his own and calculated the fine of two days' pay based on his annual salary of roughly $66,000. He paid the city tax office by check.

Bain said he is not involved in the business and only wanted to help his son and city workers make extra money.
