Strong Start, zoo campaigns failed to disclose 100s of thousands in donations, expenses

Lax enforcement, compliance failures mean major transactions not promptly recorded

The backers of the Strong Start Tucson education tax for months failed to file prompt disclosures of high-dollar donations and expenses, a TucsonSentinel.com investigation shows. The No on Prop. 204 campaign had a filing error, and backers of the zoo sales tax also failed to properly file.

Why are the Yes on 204 people saying the Koch brothers/Americans for Prosperity are backing the No effort? For one, I don’t understand why the Kochs would be interested in a city of Tucson proposition that is essentially, to my view, a voucher program (don’t they like those?). Secondly, the No on 204 funds seem paltry compared to what the Kochs can do (and what the Yes people are saying). And if the Kochs are here and spending dark money on this, what are they spending it on?

I have no stake in this. I don’t live in the city limits and can’t vote on this. I haven’t been following every twist and turn and have friends on both sides of this issue. But things sure seem murky on this proposition.
