Conspiracy case hopes to show how ease PAC's can launder payoffs
#1 Feb 11, 2010
This article presumes that political contributions are defacto bribes. Perhaps one could assume so, if one concluded that the District Attorney and Attorney General are guilty of accepting the same, as in Ramos paying his wife out of his own campaign funds which must be bribes from Lewis Homes, Defense Attorneys and others.

So, Boyd is a DDA, knew hisfriend was running a bogus PAC, and he now claims he didn't know ANYTHING? Is he that stupid or that smart? I'm going with stupid......hope the State Bar is looking into this......as it appears the DA isn't.

Based on the above story, PAC's are "controlled" by individuals and exist only to "launder payoffs to public officials" and to "funnel bribes."
I know better, as I was involved in the disbursement of funds for a major PAC many years ago. No one person "controlled" the PAC, and no money was EVER disbursed without the approval of the board. There was no correlation whatsoever between those who contributed money to the PAC and those to whom it was distributed.
Dennis Hansberger didn't want to pay The Colonies one penny. Yet, according to a report in a rival newspaper, The Colonies gave post settlement money to a PAC that contributed to the committe to re-elect Supervisor Hansberger. Mike and Jerry, how do you explain that?

Pacís are a cancer on democracy; and they, in their current form, should be banned. This is how many of our "forever" politicians make their living. Prostituting themselves to developers. This is going on in your community right now, and we had better wake up.
