County Campaign Finance Fizzles

The Times- Standard reports efforts by the county to reform campaign finance fizzled out due to lack of interest. How can this be? I thought everybody wanted money out of politics? Supervisors Bass and Sundberg were still interested, but it sounds as if most everybody else wasn't. Perhaps it was just a small group that were really interested in regulating local campaign finances.

Either that, or proponents realized reforms being proposed might affect both sides equally and, as I've written here before, most reform proposals are simply ploys to gain advantage over the other side- the recently thrown out Measure T being an example. No sense working for reform when you might end up with a level playing field, huh?

Sheep and cattle tend to go were their handlers tell them if media says there's no interest then there must not be any. just like the media says there's no evidence that the government was behind 9/11 the Connecticut shooting the Aurora shooting the First World Trade Center bombing the Gulf of Tonkin incident operation Gladio World War 2 the Arab spring the Syrian uprising ... There's no DHS arms build up there's no active drones in our skies they didnt burn down dorners cabin on purpose one could go on for days or I could just go Baaaa.

"Henchman Of Justice" says,

If you know interest is not really there prior to deliberation, then does it not seem that insincere types can say whatever they want to make it appear as if sincerity exists on an individual level, even though sincerity is just a "thought" used to deceive so often - HOJ
