Garamendi

Here’s a tidbit from the campaign finance files of the now-defunct John Garamendi for Governor 2010 account: He donated in December $1,000 each to the re-election campaigns of Democratic Assemblywoman Joan Buchanan and state Sen. Mark DeSaulnier.

These two were now-Rep. Garamendi’s fierce foes in last September’s special primary election fight to replace the outgoing Ellen Tauscher in the 10th Congressional District.

Ahhh, isn’t that nice?

It doesn’t quite compensate Buchanan for the $850,000 of her own money she put into the congressional campaign but heck, it’s the thought that counts.

    Now that he’s won the election, how ’bout putting up a photo of John that is not 20 years old.

    A few Googles will reveal several photos that are more accurate. Or does he really have a portrait well-hidden from prying eyes in his attic?

    Are you being cynical, Lisa? It is our favorite time of the year, income tax time. So what if the U.S. Tax Code now exceeds 67,000 pages! Campaign contributions aren’t deductable, and Corporations are now more important than individuals.
