Repeal law that deters public scrutiny in campaign finances

Earlier this week the state Ethics Board rolled out its Eye on Financial Relationships web site. While the concept is being lauded, the process by which the public can obtain information contained within the site is receiving criticism.

One such example is the Wisconsin State Journal. There was an editorial in yesterday's edition of the WSJ that outlined the specific problems the editorial board sees with the site. The piece also suggests that the governor and state legislature repeal laws that discourage public scrutiny into candidates' and elected officials' campaign finances and the like.
