Voice: Political candidates in Calexico are a bunch of wimps

March 01, 2002

The required listing of all political expenditures and contributions by Calexico candidates have been filed with one notable exception. Why is there one missing?

The latest campaign has seen a new all-time high in money spent by a candidate. The public and voters in particular are being denied their legal right to know who are the big-money contributors. Who is trying to buy political influence in a big way? Disclosure is the protection the law provides. Believe it or not, the penalty for nondisclosure is a mere $10 a day.

In spite of the exaggerated campaign expenses of this one candidate, not a single other candidate for any office has had the courage to challenge this gross contempt of campaign disclosure compliance. They are all a bunch of wimps for their implicit acquiescence. Is there not even one honest candidate who will demand observance of the disclosure requirement?
