A recent letter to the editor (Doesnt believe Bublak charges, Jan. 12) infers that the accusations against Turlock City Councilwoman Amy Bublak and former Councilman Kurt Vander Weide by the California Fair Political Practices Commission should be dismissed as insignificant.
There is nothing insignificant in damaging a persons character also called slander. This action by the FPPC will serve as a cautionary tale to future candidates who think they can scoff at ethical political rules. It makes no difference if the illegality occurred five minutes or five years ago. And to answer the letter writers question (What does Mary Jackson stand to gain from this?), she stands to regain her good name.
