Discrepancies found in CA governor aides’ fair political practices reporting

By Katy Grimes | Cal Watchdog

Several recent CalWatchdog.com stories about some of Gov. Jerry Brown’s appointees have looked at reports filed on conflicts of interest and financial disclosure.

Specifically, Form 700 is a Statement of Economic Interests required of “designated” government employees, meaning the governor’s top aides and consultants. Some, but not all, of Brown’s “designated” appointees have filed Form 700s with the Fair Political Practices Commission.

As CalWatchdog.com detailed, the FPPC included in its files Form 700 from Fish and Game Commissioner Mike Sutton.

But for new Labor Secretary David Lanier, the FPPC did not comply with CalWatchDog.com’s request for copies of his Form 700.
