I received the following mailer today endorsing a whole raft of Democrats, but then urging me to vote yes on Prop 14 and 16 from
Californians Vote Green
555 S. Flower St. Ste. 4210
Los Angeles CA 90071
This appears to be a mailbox place for lots of front groups.
This committee’s funding information doesn’t appear online yet. Anyone wanna bet PG&E is behind this? Appearance is authorized by each candidate?! This means Hahn, Nava, Jones, Romero, and Brown paid to go out on a mailer to endorse Prop 16? This is not the same as a real independent group making endorsements that have nothing to do with each other. They created this group and let Prop 16 on board.
Please remind your friends that Proposition 16 has NOTHING to do with “green” and everything to do with exposing even more Californians to Enron “death stars.”
UPDATE: I found this committee’s funding information. [PDF]
This org received $40,000 from Dave Jones, $40,000 from Gloria Romero, $40,000 from Pedro Nava, and smaller amounts from various local communities as of 3/17/2010. No one endorsing any of the Propositions is in the information I could find.
It’s not all that hard to game the filing system to make it difficult for things to be found out right away. I think these candidates have some ‘splainin’ to do.
