What Eric Hogue Says
Eric Hogue, morning host on KTKZ (Home of the Recall) says Doolittle is trying to purchase Kingdom Insurance and it is wrong.
Doolittle Campaigns Against Prop 77 and Governor
I thought it would come to something like this...
Let's just call this what it is, "Kingdom Insurance". Republicans should NOT be supporting gerrymandered districts, nor should they be working against the governor's reform initiatives.
The Federal Election Commission voted Thursday to let members of Congress raise unlimited "soft money" donations to fight Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger's redistricting initiative.
The 6-0 decision by the commission came in response to a request from U.S. Reps. Howard Berman, D-North Hollywood, and John Doolittle, R-Rocklin, both of whom oppose the redistricting plan.
The decision will allow federal officeholders to raise unlimited sums from unions, corporations and other donors to support or oppose any measure on the Nov. 8 special election ballot.
In general, federal campaign finance law limits federal officeholders to raising $5,000 each from donors for nonfederal elections. Commissioners decided those limits should not apply in the case of the special election, in part because there are no federal officials on the ballot
