Chicken John just took out an ad in the SF Weekly inviting people to South Park at noon October 9 to chat about what bullshit rules the Ethics Commission used to keep him from getting public funds.
According to our man John, the city will only match you if your funds qualify, meaning: donor addresses have to match donor driver's licenses (screw you, students), and no paypal (screw you, intertubes!).
"The whole public finance system is broken" he said.
Sad thing is, some arsehole probably made these rules to help little guys compete. But that's the thing about making rules: you can never envision the blowback -- like say a plucky no-hoper who tries to run an unconventional campaign.
Thanks for helping the powers that be, Ethics Commission!
