William Perry, who recently started Georgia Ethics Watchdogs after leading Georgia Common Cause for several years, said campaign reports lawmakers and candidates file are sometimes padded with “fluff.”

“These reports are based on trust,” he said. “You don’t have to back them up with any documentation, you don’t have to show a bank statement.

“The problem boils down to the fact that our commission, even with strong leadership and funding for support staff, doesn’t have the authority to enforce the law.”
