Supervisor Tony Hall’s breaking of the voluntary spending cap in District 7 last week has the Ethics Commission rethinking the whole game. “In 2002, the only other time when the public financing program was in effect, the commission did not lift the spending limit in any district until the last day for filing nomination papers in August,” commission chair Michael Garcia said. “I tope the commission will be able to consider these matters after the November election.” … Tony’s clearly letting money do the talking in telling everybody else to stay out of the race. It may not be the best for Democracy, but it’s what he’s doing. And so far, it’s working.
