You might remember Lee Majors
as the $6 million man, but Governor Schwarzenegger brought in six
figures of his own at a fundraiser in Bakersfield last night,
reportedly bringing in more than $600K for the California Republican
The bionic man had supersonic hearing, but Arnold has a supersonic sniffer when it comes to campaign cash.
Last night’s fundraiser follows a flurry of fundraising including the
Gov’s trip to the Republican Convention in New York last week which was
paid for in part by pharmaceutical companies. The drug industry wants
Arnold to veto several bills on his desk that allow individuals,
employers and public programs to buy lower cost prescription drugs from
Canada through bulk purchasing.
So much for Arnold’s promise to be the Governor for the people and not the special interests.
The Gov’s mindset is evident in his comment last night that the reason
for the heavy security at the event was because, "We want to make sure
no one gets in here without a contribution check."
