Local Sunlight


Every week I climb into the depths of the local political blogosphere to find the Sunlight. I use this series to highlight local blogs that do a great job of covering local, state, and congressional political news. I have highlights from Kansas, Washington, and Massachusetts.

Kansas MeadowLark has an excellent post on the different reporting requirements Kansas has for out of state PACs versus in state PACs.  The post points out that a large sum of money from out of state PACs are not being put online so people can find them.

In Washington, HorsesAss, has a great post on possible campaign donation disclosure violations by the State Attorney General and the Washington Association of Realtors.

In Massachusetts, Hub Politics, talks about Gov. Patrick’s Task Force on Public Integrity’s meeting.  The meeting is set to ask citizens for input on how to keep lawmakers more honest.
