Gustavo's Latest KCRW "OC Line": On the OC Supes Rejecting a Local Ethics Committee
Hey, Todd: Why ya scared about an ethics commission?
From the OC Weekly Museum
One of the funniest scorched-earth campaigns I've witnessed in my years at this infernal rag is the Board of Supervisors versus longtime campaign-finance watchdog Shirley Grindle. Who on earth could hate someone who follows the money on who's giving what to which douchebag? EVERYONE!
It's this hatred that led the supes to push Measure E, a November initiative for which too many of you voted. It effectively neutered any chance of OC ever having a local ethics committee to replace Grindle when she eventually goes to the Big File Cabinet in the Sky, giving investigatory powers instead to the ox that is the California Fair Political Practices Committee. This was the subject of my KCRW-FM 89.9 commentary this past Monday.
