Campaign Reform Advocates Disagree on Reforms

Hosted by

Last week's passage of Measure R demonstrated that LA voters care about ethics reform. Yesterday, the city's Ethics Commission passed new limits on campaign spending. They will be considered by the City Council, but in the meantime, one Commission member says it's being "loved to death" by people who say they share the same goals. He writes, "Spare us from the reformers.  Give me a cynical old pol who at least keeps his or her word." We hear both sides.
