We detailed how the Stop SB48 Campaign is connected to the CRI and the AB1266 Referendum by common threads, address, Karen England, etc.
Now, we have an additional nexus. Two of the top boosters of the CRI, Then Assemblymember Jim Nielsen and Then State Senator Doug LaMalfa are both on the California Secretary of State’s website with $1000 donations to Stop SB48.
While neither LaMalfa Nor Nielsen did anything wrong by donating to this, it underscores the need for an investigation.
Doug LaMalfa himself attacked the Placer County Republican Party for its’ alleged (never proven) lack of transparency on the front page of the Sacramento Bee.
I would expect both Jim Nielsen (now a State Senator) and Doug LaMalfa (now a Congressman) to demand an accounting for what happened to the money they donated. They need to demand transparency.
Please also note that both Nielsen and LaMalfa signed emails sent by the Stop SB 48 Campaign, doing what else? Fundraising. (many of us remember them, but I am not sure if anyone saved copies of them)
It is now apparent that real money was raised by the Stop SB48 Campaign, and with the nexus of the pending FPPC complaint and the campaign getting forcibly terminated for failure to file… this should send of alarm bells.
