'Shamed' No More: On Same Day as Receiving Delinquent Notice (and Mention in SF Weekly Article) Coalition for Responsble Growth Files Expenditure Reports

Yesterday we wrote about how a San Francisco "pro-moderate/anti-progressive" group, the Coalition for Responsible Growth, was less responsible about filing its campaign expenditures in a timely manner.

After a month of delinquency in failing to report how much it spent in the last election, the CRG abruptly filed  its expenditure report yesterday -- the same day it received a second late notice and a spot on the Ethics Commission's "Hall of Shame" for non-responsive filers (and, perhaps not coincidentally, a prominent role in our article). It is unclear how much the CRG will be fined -- but at $35 a day for a month it's likely to top $1,000. The coalition was docked roughly $1,500 for missing its two previous reporting deadlines.

Two other committees mentioned in SF Weekly's article, Eric Mar for DCCC and Jill Wynns for School Board, also filed yesterday, as did the Richmond District Democratic Club.

Perhaps not surprisingly "Robert E. McCullough for Mayor -- 'Captain Democracy'"  has still not filed. So he's still Captain Delinquent -- until he makes admiral.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
