Ruh Roh. New California Republican Party Chairman Jim Brulte is meeting with union heads and walking away with thousands of dollars, according to the Sacramento Bee, which reported that:
- On Tuesday, Service Employees International Union Local 1000 donated $15,000 to the party.
- A California Teachers Association political action committee donated $10,000 earlier this month.
- The California Correctional Peace Officers Association donated $3,000 to the party in August.
Brulte said, “I reach out to everybody” and that with Republican voter registration under 30 percent in California “you’ve got to get outside your comfort zones.”
The biggest issue in our state is the public employee pension crisis. CRP Chairman Brulte is now tossing gasoline on the fire by getting in bed with the unions that are bankrupting our state.
I have been saying for awhile now that the Republicans and the Democrats are pretty much the same party, with the exception of the GOP’s nuttiness on social issues, and now we have further proof of that. Click here to re-register as a Libertarian.
