first_img Registrar-Recorder Conny McCormack said the city of Los Angeles has software the county could use to screen campaign contributions for potential violations and refer those cases to prosecutors. McCormack has proposed adding a manager to oversee workers who would scan into computers the thousands of campaign finance documents generated by races for the county’s eight elected offices – the five supervisors, district attorney, sheriff and assessor. McCormack’s office also handles campaign finance reports received from more than 8,000 committees in connection with candidates and measures and about 700 officeholders in schools, community college and special districts.

After learning that a 1996 campaign-finance law contains flaws that make it difficult to prosecute violators, Los Angeles County supervisors directed officials Tuesday to fix the problems. Since voters approved Proposition B – designed to reduce the influence of campaign contributions on county government and elected officials’ decisions – no candidate or official has been prosecuted or fined for violating its rules. “This is ridiculous,” Supervisor Zev Yaroslavsky said. “Every other jurisdiction that has a campaign finance law has an enforcement component. If the district attorney can’t do it, maybe we need to contract with the attorney general.” In a letter to the supervisors, District Attorney Steve Cooley wrote there are few investigative tools available to establish whether a candidate in county races has violated the law. County Counsel Ray Fortner said it’s difficult for prosecutors to charge suspected violators of exceeding contribution limits – or accepting contributions from registered lobbyists – because of a limited ability to obtain evidence. “They do not have the power in misdemeanor cases to issue search warrants or subpoena for bank records,” Fortner said. The board’s discussion followed reports that more than two dozen contribution violations occurred in 2003-04, including instances involving Cooley and Supervisors Michael D. Antonovich, Yvonne Brathwaite Burke and Don Knabe. The Daily News reported last month that Knabe had accepted two contributions totaling $1,500 from a Marina del Rey lessee, exceeding the $1,000 annual limit. Marina boat owners have filed five lawsuits against the county alleging they are being squeezed out by politically connected developers who need their parking spaces to build luxury residential complexes. center_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWalnut’s Malik Khouzam voted Southern California Boys Athlete of the Weeklast_img read more
