    Pro-Stone TV ads, but where's the money?

    PE PoliticsBy on June 1, 2010 2:41 PM

    A group backing the Senate candidacy of Riverside County Supervisor Jeff Stone has produced an ad featuring a leading supporter of Arizona's new law targeting illegal immigrants.

    A related group has produced an ad going after Stone's main rival for the Republican nomination in the 36th Senate District, Assemblyman Joel Anderson, R-Alpine.

    It's unknown where, or to what extent, the ads are airing. Neither independent-expenditure committee — "Friends in Support of Jeff Stone for Senate 2010" and "Voters Opposed to Joel Anderson for Senate 2010" — have filed electronic reports disclosing how much they have spent since their creation last month.

    The committees' principal officer is Temecula developer Larry Markham. Markham was not immediately available for comment Tuesday.

    State campaign-finance rules say that independent expenditures must be reported within 24 hours, along with campaign contributions of more than $1,000, from March 10 through the June 8 election.

    On Tuesday, an organization that has endorsed Anderson announced that it was filing a complaint with the state's campaign-finance watchdog agency alleging that Stone illegally failed to report late campaign contributions in April and May.

    Stone's campaign did not report any late contributions until today. His latest campaign-finance report, however, shows that he received $121,000 worth of contributions of $1,000 or more from March 18 through May 22.

    In a press statement, Scott Barnett of said "seems to think the rules don't apply to him."

    FPPC complaints are common in the final days of a political race, as campaigns look to publicize real or imagined wrongdoing by their opponents.

    Stone said Thursday he had not heard of the FPPC complaint.

    "I have an accountant to take of all my finances," Stone said. "We'll see if there's any validity to their claims but I don't think there is."

    It's also time for "Sheriff Joe" in Arizona, to be informed about the questionable associations and illegal activities of his "friend" Jeff Stone.

    Sheriff Joe should be more careful about how he uses the word "integrity" when he chooses to apply it to politicians he says he knows.

    Stone is such a smug a-hole

    Seriously, Joe Arpaio is of the same cut as Stone. Arrogant, willful, will have his own way regardless of the law, the constitution, or anything else that gets underfoot. In other words, I don't think Shurf Joe would give a rats ass about his beady eyed buddy Jeff's malfeasance.

    Keep your focus on Stone.

    Sheriff Joe doesn't kiss the asses of trespassing aliens and convicted criminals, and many feel that his idea of baloney sandwiches and pink underwear in tent cities in the desert is a far better solution than the institutions requiring thousands of 6-figure salaried prison guards that are now helping to bankrupt California.
