In case you missed it —
Former governor Schwarzenegger was just fined $30,000 by the FPPC for illegally funding advertising for a budget fight with money he raised in unlimited amounts from corporate donors to his California Dream Team ballot measure committee. Consumer Watchdog sent a letter of complaint to the FPPC in July of 2009 about Schwarzenegger's improper use of campaign funds. The Democratic Party also submitted a complaint.
Consumer Watchdog applauds the FPPC's action – but it comes two years too late to stop former Governor Schwarzenegger's misuse of ballot measure committees to circumvent campaign fundraising limits.
