When reading Dave Lopez’s 460’s, which is a list of campaign donors of $99.00 or more, one thing jumped off the page at us. Of sixteen donors who gave $1,000 or more, only five were completely filled out. The Fair Political Practices Commission (FPPC) requires candidates to list the employment or business type of donors. And not surprisingly most of the missing information is from developers, real estate, and home builders. Why is he omitting the necessary information? We can guess, can you?
Maybe like the rest of the Modesto City Council he’s willing to lie to our faces (Zoslocki “I’m not a developer”, Kenoyer “I support farmland” , Lopez “I don’t want to develop Wood Colony”) to get elected and afterward he or she will do whatever or vote for whomever he or she feels like.
And yes the Modesto Bee is well aware of Lopez’s transgressions. But they choose to remain silent on the subject. Hmm, it appears Joe Kieta has turned the Modesto Bee into a Humble Bumble without teeth.
