Pittsburgh Post-Gazette - Local News - Early Returns Who's paying the freight in the South Side?Not really. He didn't file a year end because he made a mistake and didn't close the other one down to ZERO. Closed doesn't happen unless the amount is zero.
A few weeks ago, Early Returns noted that Mr. Koch's campaign finance report didn't meet legal requirements, because it didn't list individual contributors. He still hasn't filed an amended report. But it turns out his challenger, Mr. Kraus, hasn't yet filed any reports showing where his funding is coming from. Yesterday Mr. Kraus said he hasn't submitted the annual finance report required of active candidates by Jan. 31 because he closed out one campaign committee last year and opened up a new one early this year. Sounds like he gets off the hook on a technicality.
Sure, Kraus is less wrong than Koch. But it might be nice if we had an honest, open and addition capable member in council.
