Rep. Hugh Floyd files financial disclosure; 15 other lawmakers still delinquent

Rep. Hugh Floyd files financial disclosure; 15 other lawmakers still delinquent
September 17, 2009 --

Hugh Floyd, a state legislator from Norcross, filed a disclosure of his personal finances a week ago, two months after the deadline set by state law. That still leaves 15 legislators who haven’t filed their 2008 disclosures, which were due July 1; five of them have not filed their 2007 reports, either. Why is this important? It’s not, unless you want to know whether your elected officials are keeping a proper distance between the public interest and their own private interests.
