The Ohio Ethics Commission is taking action against a Columbus School Board member because of a 10 Investigates investigation.
School board member Hanifah Kambon will have to pay $11,750 in restitution.
10 Investigates revealed a series of improper contracts between the district and a company owned by Kambon's husband.
That company, called VLI, was supposedly providing education services to the district.
10 Investigates found those contracts amounted to just under $12,000.
On Friday, the Ethics Commission said that those contracts were improper under the law because of Kambon's position on the board and connection to her husband's business.
The director of the commission says the punishment was not more severe because Kambon did not actually vote on any of the contracts in question.
