@4: On the issue of Independent Expenditures vs. campaigns:There was no IE spending money to buy Facebook ads for City Attorney Pete Holmes in 2017.Facebook reported on its spreadsheet that Holmes spent $19,606 on Facebook ads in 2017.In fact, the Holmes campaign itself reported spending $43,429 on Facebook ads in 2017.That's a $23,823 discrepancy—with no IE involved.Seattle's law is pretty straightforward. Information on local political ads needs to be disclosed by Facebook upon request.Whatever may be causing it, inaccurate disclosure is a problem.
