Early in October, Commissioner Mike Moran used the platform of his office to express outrage that three Democratic candidates had received contributions from their own party – which were found in violation of an obscure clause in the County Charter.

As a stickler for the letter of the law, will Mr. Moran publicly answer questions raised by these disturbing fact patterns? Story here.
