POLS TO THE WALL

Perhaps the technique doesn't work for linking campaign contributors with their occupations. On a recent filing, Patterson neglected to include the occupation and employer of 41 of his 43 contributors. He amended the filing four months later, but a few were still missing.

It's often difficult to track down a contributor's occupation, but Patterson's list included high-profile lobbyists like Kevin DeMenna, Bob Fannin, Jack LaSota and Don Isaacson--men who spend so much time at the Capitol, they are often mistaken for legislators.

Patterson says he remembers the names and jobs, but thought his campaign treasurer--his wife, Deborah--had completed the forms correctly. And as for the reporter's American Express number, now committed to Patterson's memory? Rest assured, he says, he never memorizes the expiration date.
