Adam Hasner's sloppy paperwork problems

What is it with the Republican senate candidates and their shoddy compliance with disclosure requrements?

From George Bennett at the Palm Bach Post: ...Democratic activist Diana Demarest has filed an ethics complaint against former state House Majority Leader and likely GOP U.S. Senate candidate Adam Hasner of Boca Raton, for not filing a required personal financial disclosure form within 60 days of his November departure from office.

Hasner adviser Rick Wilson said Hasner didn't know he needed to file the form and sent it to the Ethics Commission as soon as he found out last week. Wilson accused Demarest of acting on behalf of Senate President Mike Haridopolos, R-Merritt Island, who has opened a 2012 U.S. Senate campaign.

Wilson was apparently referring to Demarest's friendship with Republican activist and BIZPAC Review co-founder Jack Furnari, who is a Haridopolos supporter. Furnari said he had nothing to do with Demarest's complaint and even declined to blog about it because it would have been "awkward. I don't have anything against Hasner. I just support Haridopolos."

Demarest said her complaint had nothing to do with either Haridopolos or Furnari. Her explanation: "I didn't like Adam Hasner when he was in the House. I certainly don't want him to be a Senator."

lol. those rethugs got no respect for the law. even their golden boyz Mikey and Adam


How is it possible that so many of our legislators don't know what paperwork they need to file? How could Hasner miss this he doesn't have anything else to do but make sure his paperwork is correct.

Demarest is clearly just trying to throw a brick through Hasner's window. What a thoughtful gesture.

More petty politics from those who think citizens work for the government, rather than the other way around.

If this form is so important to the function of good government, why doesn't the legislature send out a reminder to departing members?
