MARGATE (CBSMiami) – A city commissioner used a city-issued credit card to pay for dog boarding and numerous other purchases, state ethics officials said Wednesday.

City Commissioner David McLean faces censure from those officials, who said they found probable cause that he made the illicit purchases, the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reported.

McLean can opt for a formal hearing – similar to a trial – or reach a settlement with a Florida Commission on Ethics’ prosecutor.

From May 2008 to October 2011, ethics officials allege McLean used his city-issued VISA card for 37 transactions totaling almost $1,400, including drinks, drug store purchases and boarding for his dog.
