    Why would politicians respect campaign finance rules when there’s really no visible means of enforcement and when ballot measures that are initiated to address the problem have loopholes a mile wide? Look, if the police did not respond to bank robberies and failed to do any substantial follow-up investigations after the fact to find the culprits, would there be more bank robbers or less? This all seems to be common sense to me. But maybe I’m missing something.

      I know! Let’s make a Commission!

      • LFOldTimer

        And then 5 years down the road let’s form an ad-hoc committee to investigate why the commission failed. Once that’s done we can implement new training programs and enlarge the scope of the failed commission. Yeah, that’s the ticket!

          Oh, wait…ohohohohoh! *raises hand* How about we send the offenders to some dumb, ridiculous servant leadership program that costs millions of dollars, with kickbacks to county officials. No one loses their pension, and they spend more money to teach them that they are public servants who are there to serve each other, not the public! (I kid you not, that is the training)

            Or if they do screw up so badly that they’re forced to resign in disgrace use old campaign funds to throw a going-away party for them (w/all supes in attendance) and hand them a $300,000 golden parachute. Mel Brooks couldn’t write material this bizarre.

            Amen, LFOT. I have said, many times, that if I wrote a script of the insanity I have dealt with from these morons, over the last six years, I would never be able to sell it in Hollywood, because no one would believe that each and every person in the high levels of county government is this corrupt, or stupid and inept. It is a gd Greek tragedy.
