COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) --Records show Democratic Attorney General candidate David Pepper has paid nearly $10,000 in parking fines over the past 14 years after being ticketed more than 180 times.

An Associated Press review of Hamilton County records found Pepper, a Cincinnati lawyer, was ticketed for parking at meters that had expired or in no-parking or truck loading zones. He was also ticketed about a dozen times for displaying expired plates.

Pepper was cited an average of 13 times a year, most recently in July.

A spokesman for Pepper's campaign to unseat Republican Attorney General Mike DeWine says the candidate got "too many tickets" amid a hectic schedule - and paid them all.

The finding comes as Democrats' gubernatorial candidate, Ed FitzGerald, faces criticism for lacking a valid driver's license for a decade.
