Here's What I Know...

...About the Word Invisible

That according to Merriam-Webster, it is pronounced(")in-'vi-z&-b&l, functions as an adjective, has the following sequence of origin: Middle English, from Middle French, from Latin invisibilis, from in- + visibilis visible, and means:

1 a : incapable by nature of being seen b : inaccessible to view : hidden
2 : imperceptible, inconspicuous
3 a : not appearing in published financial statements b : not reflected in statistics

So for example, in addition to his Council Campaign Committee, Lew Fidler uses an off-balance sheet account called Friends of Lew Fidler IV (an account he established for his District Leader race) to dole out dollars for his Council dates. I would call this virtually invisible (especially to the public) since one has to know to physically go down to the Board of Elections to view these transactions.

The discovery that Melinda Katz has invested hard dollars in the campaigns of Joel Rivera and Lew Fidler (as uncovered in this post) we could probably all agree is NOT nearly as invisible.

Having said that, we all know that the Speaker candidates are investing additional resources in the Council campaigns, like sending staff into the field, fundraising, facilitating new connections, etc. The super invisible, if you will.

So who's doing what where? I've got some leads, but need more...
