Hey, look, concrete proposals

Lt. Gov. Lucy Baxley, the Democratic gubernatorial candidate who's been needing some press attention in the worst way lately, wants to ban PAC-to-PAC transfers and permit state lawmakers to accept no more than $250 annually from any given lobbyist. Sounds good to me, but good luck getting the Legislature to agree.

Baxley also wants to create the position of inspector general, an officer appointed by committee to investigate public corruption for six years and forward the findings to law enforcement. It's an interesting idea, though I couldn't endorse it fully before knowing the degree to which its duties overlapped with those of the AG's public corruption unit.
