A Tallahassee appeals court upheld an ethics censure against the former legislator, a Miami Republican who is running again. Rivera faces a nearly $58,000 fine for failing to disclose income and double-billing taxpayers for travel by accepting a state reimbursement for a trip paid for by his political campaign.
