California Insurance Commissioner Ricardo Lara is refusing to disclose records of his business dealings. The Sacramento Bee says the Consumer Watchdog claims that Lara accepted thousands of dollars in campaign donations directly from insurance leaders and their spouses. The advocacy group sees the alleged donations as a conflict of interest, coming from the very industry that he is supposed to regulate. Lara’s office says those records are privileged and confidential.
