First open government, now campaign finance reform…

Sen. Dede Feldman has the goods over at her blog:

At a time of widespread public disgust with secrecy and corruption in government, the New Mexico Senate in the past two days has turned down two key ethics and campaign reform measures that I sponsored…

Disaster number two was the rejection of a bill yesterday that tightened campaign reporting requirements, closed a loophole that allowed independent expenditures (often from out of state) to spend freely without anyone knowing how much and for what purpose. The bill also sought to curb the practice of huge cash contributions like the sort we all saw on videotape in the Robert Vigil Treasurer case.

So, we know the NM Senate is all about business as usual. Disgusting.
