The Ethics Commission has been busying itself of late going after repeat violators who fail to file campaign disclosures and fudge reimbursements. Though they’ve become expert sleuths at figuring out how many miles a legislator can drive in one day, they’ve overlooked one glaring omission by this state’s Repeat Offender in Chief. So I decided to help them out by filing a complaint.
Perdue PAC, set up as a slush fund for the Governor’s dormant re-election account, hasn’t filed its required end of year report for 2007, even though at least 3 other Georgia political entities reported making a contribution to the PAC. Governor Perdue, not content to be the first Governor in modern history to be found guilty by the Ethics Commission and not ready to stop at being the first Governor in history to appoint a Chief Operating Officer likely to be found guilty of violating Georgia’s ethics laws, is apparently openly contemptuous of the law as his PAC willfully ignores open government requirements.
