Jim Baca, the Democratic Candidate for Commissioner of Public Lands, has a blog. I’ve discussed it once or twice in the past. What I find really interesting is that although he has been actively posting this week, he has failed to mention how terrible he feels about accepting $10,000 from a man indicted on felony charges of soliciting teenage prostitutes.

I guess he doesn’t think it’s such a big deal. After all, his first response to news was that he needed to check with his Treasurer as to whether or not he should return the money. Apparently, Mr. Baca’s treasurer serves in additional capacity as his advisor on ethical behavior.
