Hatch violates the law

I'm beginning to think there's no justice in the world. First the Hatch daughters get off scott free, now this.

After a five-month review of state Attorney General Mike Hatch's campaign finances, state regulators found probable cause of an inadvertent law violation but nothing serious enough to warrant a fine.

I want to know just what kind of Mickey Mouse operation this Campaign Finance and Public Disclosure Board is! The man was found guilty, but no punishment. Hatch should be held to a higher standard for two reason: he should set an example as the State’s attorney, but also because he’s a seasoned veteran, and by that I mean he’s been running for office since the Perpich administration.
