Just in case you didn’t know, Meg Whitman has a lot of money. Her gigantic pile of money includes that she which made from eBay and her little dalliance with Goldman Sachs. Heck, even Steve Poizner thought it was skeezy. But, at this point, she doesn’t see any reason whatsoever to stop making every effort to purchase the governor’s gig. And why not, $104 million is really only a down payment, and it’s just one step away from the White House, her intended destination anyway.
So, she really doesn’t need any added financial resources, but why the heck not?
Days after California’s political watchdog agency said it would not crack down on issue advocacy ads until after the Nov. 2 election, a business group took aim at Democratic gubernatorial candidate Jerry Brown with a blistering example of such ads.
The Small Business Action Committee, backing Republican Meg Whitman for governor, launched a new television ad attacking Brown’s record on job creation and spending. (SacBee)
Of course, Joel Fox, the leader of this committee is quite supportive of Whitman. He should be anyway. Just a few days after she paid $10,000 to be on his slate card for the primary, the committee endorsed her. How convenient. Must be good to get the green stuff coming in from Whitman and going out from the big corporations. And there are cuts to be had at each stop.
Now, I would post there ad, but I think I prefer this Steve Poizner ad about Meg a lot better.
