COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) -- South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley has agreed to pay a $3,500 fine for not properly identifying donors to her 2010 campaign.

In a consent order signed this week with the State Ethics Commission, Haley also agrees to forward a combined $4,200 from eight donors to the Children's Trust Fund and reimburse the ethics agency $2,000.

It resolves a complaint filed in July 2011 by a state Democratic Party employee regarding campaign filings that did not show the addresses of 45 donors and the occupations of more than 2,000.

The commission determined Haley's campaign had addresses on file for all but eight. Only one donor who gave $200 was not eventually identified.

Haley also acknowledges not obtaining the occupations of all donors as required, calling it an unintentional error.
