Defense Says Political Activity Manual 'Confusing'

The defense attorneys spent the afternoon trying to show there are contradictions in state documents regarding political activity and legislative staffers.

While Fuller said under cross examination that there was no language in the old policy manual regarding campaign activity, he told Blanchard under re-direct that language exists defining and prohibiting political activity.

However, Morgan pointed out that some of the job activities ascribed to the caucus director position included expressly political activities.

Adding fuel to Morgan's flame, Fuller said, "Everything we do in the Assembly is political."

"And therefore, the manual on political activity is confusing at best," said Morgan.

"I'm confused, yes," answered Fuller.

Next up is Eric Grant, a former graphic designer with ARC.
