As I blogged about on December 29, some officeholders were using a loophole in California's notoriously weak campaign finance law to raise unlimited contributions. Now, the Fair Political Practices Commission is closing that loophole that they had themselves created back in 2001. Voters can thank Cruz Bustamonte, whose flagrant use of the loophole during the recent recall campaign brought attention to this outrageous practice and forced the FPPC to reconsider its past rulings. Details can be found here in the Los Angeles Times.
