Corrupting influence of big-money donors
Regarding the Aug. 31 article “Checks Roll In as Laws Flow Out” and the inflow of money into the political system, Assemblyman Joe Nation (D-San Rafael) stated, “It creates a perception of impropriety.” Wrong. It sustains a reality of corruption.
GERALD A. REDONDO
We have again reached our annual frenzy of the Legislature passing questionable laws while collecting large contributions from those who benefit.
This is the same body of lawmakers who did not have the will to pass the Clean Money Act.
These people are the best reason to pass Proposition 89 (to create a system for public financing of political campaigns) in November.
California must remove the corrupting influence of big-money donors.
