I wanted to let you folks know that yesterday afternoon, working with my attorney Robert Highsmith, I filed ethics complaints against Democrat Gubernatorial candidates Cathy Cox and Mark Taylor. Both of these candidates have demonstrated a spend now, disclose later mentality, and I felt it was my duty to bring that to the attention of the State Ethics Commission.
All we ask for is careful consideration by the Commission and a level playing field for Governor Perdue. I’m sick and tired of the Democrats filing a complaint every time the Governor sneezes. Democrats’ actions should be scrutinized as well.
From Dick Pettys’ AP story:
Among other specific complaints, the GOP activist charged that Cox made a $50,000 TV buy late in her 1998 campaign but failed to report it until 14 months later in violation of disclosure rules.
Among the complaints against Taylor was that he listed numerous expenditures as “field expenses” without saying specifically what they were. “It’s not clear where the money went,” said Highsmith.
