what transparency.

It certainly does not start at the top.

An early provision would have held elected officials directly responsible for improper reporting of campaign finance activities or for filing incomplete documentation.

That was shot down early in the process.

How is that significant you might ask? Think back...

The Easley Campaign was fined $100,000 for failing to report numerous flights and other items "donated" to the campaign. Time came to pay the money as the campaign committee was dissolved.

Under the provision which was struck from the bill, Big Mike would have been required to pay the fine personally. Under the bill signed, no such requirement.

Wonder why that provision was struck??

Could it be Bev faced similar issues from her campaign? They reported, belatedly, something like 60 or more flights? Could Senator Basnight have faced similar issues? Closer to home, how about retiring Senator Boseman?

The ones at the top are always going to be transparent; so transparent you see nothing about their activities.
