In the post below regarding campaign solicitations by Democratic gubernatorial candidate Jerry Brown, California’s Capitol erroneously stated that the Attorney General wants donors to contribute $20 each WEEK between now the November election to counter spending by his GOP rival Meg Whitman.

In fact, the solicitation sought is $20 PER MONTH. Tehre are roughly five months between June 17 and the November election. At $20 per month over that period, 910,000 Californians would have to kick down $100 each to reach the $91 million in personal funds Whitman has spent so far on her campaign. That is significantly more than the 227,500 persons said needed to reach parity with Whitman’s spending to date in the previous post.

California’s Capitol regrets the error.

  1. I would have thought that Moon Beam could just channel the money.
    Folks it is not the Governor who can stop the bleeding of red ink it is the legislature. Until someone place the blame were it should be placed there never will be a balanced budget. Cutting vacant positions is not saving one dime. Duh the position has been vacant and therefore no one was paid.
