Bleeding Heartland: Pharmacy group didn't disclose reception for governor, lawmakers
Excerpted from this post at Bleeding Heartland
Groups that throw receptions for Iowa legislators are supposed to file
a disclosure report within five business days of the event, but the
Iowa Pharmacy Association filed paperwork for its February 10
reception only this week. Why now? Journalists have been asking about
the event that preceded State Representative Kerry Burt's drunk
driving arrest around 2 am on February 11. Burt told an Ankeny police
officer that he'd been drinking with the governor that evening.
I agree with Iowa Citizens for Community Improvement; the Iowa
Pharmacy Association's disclosure violation once again demonstrates
the need for campaign finance reform.
