People who need people

I understand that divas like Barbra Streisand are accustomed to getting their way unconditionally without being held to account for their behavior. But I would remind Ms. Streisand and her sycophantic cronies on the Malibu Citizens that Malibu’s civic life is not some Hollywood back room where deals are cut out of public view. If Streisand and others insist upon illegally and anonymously financing campaigns of character assassination by Malibu Citizens and the Road Worriers, they will be held accountable.

The law says that Barbra Streisand and her diva peers have the same right as anyone else to participate in political campaigns. I would remind them that they also have the same responsibilities. They must follow the law. Aiding and abetting political fund-raising cover-ups and criminal acts are against the law — for Streisand and her pals just as they were for Richard Nixon.

All law-abiding Malibu residents and the council that created the campaign laws — whatever their views on specific development issues – must demand that the courts uphold the law for superstars as well as for the rest of us in Malibu.
