Remember the ridiculous initiative against the State Senate Districts? The CAGOP emptied their treasury and Dave Gilliard pocketed an estimated $200k in Consulting fees for/from?
Dave Gilliard decided to take the money and run. Today, the capitol alert released a blog including quotes from Dave Gilliard blaming the California Supreme Court for why they won’t try to campaign for what is now known as Prop 40.
I love this quote:
Jason Kinney, spokesman for the Senate Democratic Caucus that opposed the referendum, said he was not surprised that GOP sponsors have decided not to bankroll a Proposition 40 campaign.
“This was a highly partisan, high-risk gambit by a handful of Republican Party establishment members — and it’s clearly backfired,” Kinney said of the referendum.
