This is another one of those names that I kept seeing running expenditures in target races and also was seeing their money pop in to other PAC’s.
Reform California Now IE Committee is also known as California Now Independent Expenditure Committee.
The list of suspects includes some names that you’d expect – and a lot more:
California Dental Association – $100k
Anthem Blue Cross – $100k
California Alliance for Progress in Education
JobsPAC – $255k
California Association of Realtors PAC – $675K
Phillip Morris $396,702.00
The Irvine Company
Enterprise H0ldings (monterey)
Sempra Energy 125K
California BIA $75K
Farmer’s Insurance $125K
Charles Munger $250K
Personal Insurance Federation $150K
Associated General Contractors $50K
New Majority PAC $115K
Small Business Action Committee $34K
California Apartment Association $90K
California Farm Bureau $60K
California Charter Schools Association $75K
Most of the money from this PAC was sent to other PAC’s – including the California Senior Advocates league PAC, a primary vehicle used to attack conservative Republicans in races.
However, a bunch of Money was sent to Citizens Against Wasteful Spending PAC, a vehicle used to fund attacks against Fran Pavley and to Support Todd Zink in a target State Senate Race.
Another wad was sent to the Inland Empire Taxpayer’s Association for the ill-fated Jeff Miller for State Senate Campaign.
And, yet more money was sent to Citizens for California Reform, a PAC used to attack Kathleen Galgiani and support Bill Berryhill for State Senate.
It is easy to conclude that the Reform California Now IE Committee was used to fund the various efforts on behalf of Republican State Senate Candidates plus was also used to attack conservatives in some R vs R Assembly races.
