Thurs. political law links

REPORT DISMISSED.  WSAU.  “Walker told a Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reporter he has not engaged in any of the conduct mentioned in the Yahoo account.”

SERIOUS ABOUT ETHICS.  RC.  “In the middle of a highly charged atmosphere on Capitol Hill, there is one center of bipartisanship in each chamber of Congress that remains above politics: the Ethics committees. And while they do most of their work outside the political theater with good reason, there is evidence of their productivity in little reported documents, in compliance with rigorous disclosure regimes and in the fact that so many members have resigned before the conclusion of ethics investigations.”

SENTENCE IN FEDERAL CASE.  Courant.  “Congressional candidate Lisa Wilson-Foley was sentenced Tuesday to five months in prison and five more of home confinement for concealing the paid position that her disgraced political mentor, former Gov. John G. Rowland, played in her 2012 campaign.”

BUNDLERS’ LAMENT.   WP.  “Who needs a bundler when you have a billionaire?”

CA:  SF CFR.  SFE.  “You should not need a legal team to file campaign reports, nor a law degree to understand them.”

KY:  CFR FAIL.  Daily Independent.  “House Bill 203, sponsored by Rep. Tanya Pullin, D-South Shore, would have established a consistent minimum level of contributions for a Kentucky political campaign before filing reports with the Kentucky Registry of Election Finance.”

TN:  ONLINE DISCLOSURE.   Nashville Scene.  “Finally, after years of whining from political observers and reporters like us, Metro campaign finance disclosures are available online.”

CAN:  TIME TO TALK BAN.  Ottawa Citizen.  ”At Wednesday’s council meeting, Nussbaum gave notice that he’ll be moving a motion next month to ask his colleagues to consider one specific thing: that council request the province allow the City of Ottawa to pass a bylaw banning corporate and union donations.”

HAVE A GOOD DAY.  I’ll send around the next set of links early next week.  Have a great weekend.
