Ethics and the Leg
Will Congress be wrested from the hands of Democrats as part of this frenzied Tea Party movement? Will Tom Fetzer be basking in a victory Nov. 2? Or crying tears of defeat with the Dems holding on to the state legislature it’s dominated for decades?
Well, we don’t know.
But, NC Policy Watch has compiled what we hope is a useful tool for voters and state political junkies by gathering up all the “statements of economic interest” that N.C. legislative candidates are required to file when running for office.
The forms are collected by the N.C. State Ethics Commission as part of a major ethics reform passed in 2006, but the forms haven’t been easily accessible online.
Until now. So, go ahead and check out the candidates in your district.
We’re sad to say the forms aren’t nearly as entertaining as the candidate of the “Rent is Too Damn High Party” proved to be at the N.Y. gubernatorial debate last night.
But, could anything really top that here in North Carolina?
