This wasn’t the best way for newly elected California Republican Party Chairman Jim Brulte to get started.
From the LA Times yesterday: New state GOP leader contributed to Greuel campaign. In part,
A campaign committee controlled by the newly elected chairman of the state Republican Party donated $1,300 to Democrat Wendy Greuel’s Los Angeles mayoral bid. Jim Brulte, who was elected chairman Sunday at the party convention in Sacramento, said he made the donation before he realized Kevin James was a viable Republican candidate. “That was before I thought Kevin James had a great shot,” he said of the September donation.“
Greuel has taken millions from public employee unions, particularly the LA Department of Water and Power that has Los Angeles by the gonads. Their union chief has been interviewed as saying his minions will be expecting raises if Greuel is elected.
Here’s a link to an interview with Kevin James yesterday with details on how this union is manipulating the LA Mayoral race.
Just what was Brulte thinking?
