Description

The watchdog agency in Indiana charged with enforcing the state's campaign finance laws does an inadequate job. THe AP uncovered dozens of violations-all of which state regulators never noticed-during their own computer-assisted analysis of more than 14,000 campaign contributions. The problem is made worse by obvious loopholes in Indiana's campaign laws, and by low funding for the State Election Board, whose purse strings are controlled by the same lawmakers it is supposed to regulate. (Aug. 4 - 6, 1995)
