Air Arnold flew again today,
this time over the capitol in Sacramento as Arnold fundraised for his
November special election initiatives at the Sheraton Grand. Today’s
plane banner read, "Don’t Be Big Business’s Bully� Arnoldwatch.org –
Calnurses.org" View the picture at http://consumerwatchdog.org/assets/scans/capitolbanner.jpg
After a press conference announcing the air strikes to raise
consciousness wherever Arnold raises money, nurses, teachers, seniors
and consumer advocates followed Schwarzenegger as he ducked into the
fundraiser. He eluded them as they chanted, "Hey, Arnold you can’t
hide, we can see your greedy side." Schwarzenegger was forced to enter
through a back door.
Today, answering questions about mounting criticism, Schwarzenegger
told the LA Times that, "They’re all around in the Capitol, as you
know, the different special interests� the purple shirts and the brown
— all the different shirts." But it looks like Arnold may have his
own team of brown shirts.
On Sunday, Air Arnold’s pilots told ArnoldWatch that the LA County
Sheriff took extraordinary steps to force down the banner plane flying
around the gov’s gated community — threatening to investigate the
pilot’s license even though commercial air traffic over 1,000 feet is
above the Sheriff’s head, jurisdictionally. Today at the capitol, two
Los Angeles County sheriffs in uniform, and carrying guns, took
pictures of the nurses, teachers, seniors and consumer advocates at the
press conference. One of the protestors asked what they were doing and
the officer answered, "This is for background." They left in a marked
LA County Sheriffs vehicle.
Is the Sheriff’s Office providing Arnold his own special surveillance
team? His fondness for Richard Nixon is showing more each day.
