WASHINGTON - A gun-control group has agreed to pay a $26,000 fine for failing to properly disclose spending on mailings opposing two Republican House candidates, the Federal Election Commission said Thursday.

The Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence Voter Education Fund didn't report $111,777 in spending to oppose Kentucky Rep. Ernest Fletcher's election, nor did it report $99,731 in spending against Pennsylvania Rep. Pat Toomey, according to the FEC.

The mailings were sent to voters shortly before the 2000 election. The spending was supposed to be reported by the Brady group's Voter Education Fund to the commission within 24 hours.
