Birkett, Watson:Governor's Plan Improper

Leader Watson was among many who denounced the governor's latest concoted "ethics" legislation:campaign finance reform, modeled on the draconian federal rules, aka McCain Feingold. Illinois, Utah, Virginia, and New Mexico are the only states in which campaign contributions are completely unencumbered by state legislation. Watson described McC-F as the "incumbents' protection act." Birkett derided the governor as a "maestro of phony reform."
