The California Fair Political Practices Commission (FPPC) announced that it has opened an investigation into TRANSDEF‘s allegations that the Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC) and BATA, its alter ego, illegally expended public resources to promote passage of Regional Measure 3 (RM3). While similar alleged conduct by AC Transit will also be investigated, no other parties were named by FPPC. See Marin IJ press coverage. The same article appeared on the East Bay Times site. Further details on the TRANSDEF complaint are available here: MTC Caught Red-Handed in Regional Measure 3 Campaign Violations.
