Take Back Miami-Dade, the group behind the effort to mount a ballot measure to repeal the Florida county's gay rights law, is guilty of at least 16 campaign finance law violations, according to a report from the Miami-Dade elections office, The Miami Herald reports. Most of the violations deal with missing filing deadlines or failing to have proper signatures on reports that were filed. The group has already been hit with $367 in fines for two of the violations. Assistant elections supervisor Gisela Salas says she will wait until September 10, when voters go to the polls to decide whether to repeal the county's antidiscrimination protections for gay men and lesbians, to refer the violations to the state elections commission.
