Yigal Bander to Discuss Women’s Participation in Politics at LSU Symposium
Bander will be part of a panel discussing “The Gendered Political Environment: How Louisiana’s Ethics Board Childcare Debacle Exemplifies the Challenges to Politicking While Female”.
Last month Bander testified on behalf of a candidate for a state House seat who successfully appealed a Louisiana Ethics Board decision denying her the right to use campaign funds for childcare during campaign events.
“Additional child care that is for the sole purpose of allowing a candidate to attend campaign functions may be a personal use, but it’s a personal use related to a political campaign,” Bander said, as quoted in The Advocate newspaper.
The candidate appealed to the state Ethics Board arguing that reasonable childcare expenses are a legitimate campaign expense and since 2000 the board previously had allowed male candidates to use campaign funds for the same purpose.
