Last year (or was it the year before?) a local conservative PAC (political action committee) named SAVE Whatcom filed a state Public Disclosure Commission (PDC) report 2 days late, caused by a glitch related to a holiday. For their sins they were fined $1,500.00 and pilloried by the press. This year, radically environmental ReSources for Sustainable Communities, a powerful non-profit which is a regular government contractor yet sworn to be apolitical, launched off on a $51,213 spending spree into politics apparently without any intention to start a PAC as required by law. When the situation was exposed and they finally created the action committee, they filed their PDC report 64 days late. What were they fined? Zero. Zip. Nada. There's an old saying, "Fish rot from the head down." Arrogance and greed are corrupting this nation into a banana republic on every level.
