Exposing political corruption- How qualified is [Democrat] Vermont State Attorney General William Sorrell at competently understanding Constitutional law?  "The State of Vermont must pay $1.4 million in legal fees after a 1997 campaign finance case was successfully argued by lawyers representing the state's Republican Party and others."  Att. Gen. Sorrell's response: "[it] was a bitter pill to swallow." -Addison Eagle, 09-15-07  Hardworking taxpayer's money is being squandered is it not? You the citizen are qualified to judge!

 Excerpts: 1999 Guide to Vermont's Campaign Finance Law

- Published by the Office of the Secretary of State; August 1999; Deborah L. Markowitz, Secretary of State

Title 17 Chapter 59 Campaign Finance

§ 2805a Campaign Expenditure Limitations: Amounts

(a) The following campaign expenditure limitations shall apply to all candidates for all primary, general and local elections, whether or not a candidate accepts Vermont campaign finance grants under subchapter 6 of this chapter, is financing his or her campaign from private contributions, or from the candidates own resources or that of his or her immediate family.

(1) A candidate for governor shall limit campaign expenditures (emphasis added) to no more than $300,000 in any two-year general election cycle.

................
(c) If a candidate for the office of governor, lieutenant governor, secretary of state, state treasurer auditor of accounts or attorney general is an incumbent (already in office) of the office being sought, the candidate shall be permitted to expend only 85 percent of the amount allowed for that office under this section. If a candidate for the general assembly is an incumbent of the office being sought, the candidate shall be permitted to expend only 90 percent of the amount allowed for that office under this section.

d) For purposes of this section, the term “candidate’ includes the candidate’s political] committee


• Federal Office: Federal law preempts state law with respect to expenditure limitations and campaign finance limits for candidates for federal office. Vermont's new campaign finance law urges (but does not require) candidates for the United States House of Representatives and Senate to observe the contribution and expenditure limitations that apply to candidates for the office of governor.

Black’s Law Dictionary, 6th Edition Lawless- Not subject to law; not controlled by law; not authorized by law; not observing the rules and forms of law.

Can you find below any corruption that manifested itself with the governor(s) Campaign Expenditure Limitations? Did any of these candidates exceed the $300,000 limit prescribed by Law?
