Schwarzenegger's slush fund perfectly legal
Sacramento Bee |
"Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger has funneled nearly a quarter-million dollars to a private nonprofit committee that is lobbying the Legislature and promoting his views without disclosing how the money is being spent or where it originates, records show. Campaign finance experts called the California Recovery Team a 'slush fund' that allows the governor to skirt disclosure laws that apply to most political committees. Although the committee filed campaign finance reports that showed it spent $252,013 to influence legislative or administrative action, it didn't detail where the money went or where it came from. The sources of the money were determined only by checking payments from other Schwarzenegger-controlled funds."
