PR firm fined over Gadhafi's Bedford tent

Posted: Updated:

The firm that rented out Donald Trump's Bedford estate on behalf of Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi was fined $1,000 Thursday for violating the town's zoning codes.

The public relations company Belle Weather Strategies rented the property at 52 Oregon Road, where Gadhafi was supposed to stay in a tent on his visit to the United Nations in September. However, the Libyan leader never made it to Bedford and his tent was taken down after town officials filed criminal summonses.

The PR firm agreed to plead guilty to four violations of zoning ordinances and pay the maximum fine the town could collect.
