Unions give $1.15 million to CA Democrats
Democrats howl about campaign finance and how the Koch brothers are buying elections, but Federal races have some strict campaign finance laws. California has virtually none. On Friday, unions gave the California Democratic party $1.15 million. Teachers (California Teachers Association) are apparently so rich that they can cut a check for $750,000. Remind me of that the next time they want a raise. The California Democratic party can do anything they want with this money. They could throw the whole amount into Jose Solorio's state senate, SD-34, account if they wanted. What they can't do is give much of it to Pete Aguilar, CA-31, due to Federal laws. Our campaign finance laws are a joke.
