On Flap previously, California Special Election Watch: It is the TURNOUT Stupid
George Skelton, Sacramento Leftie columnist from the Los Angeles Times is FINALLY getting it.
The public employee unions have been saturating the California television airwaves and cable with ads – spending tens of millions of dollars exacted from union memberâ€™s paychecks.
In the meantime, California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger has conserved his resources for targeted media in Republican base areas. His message focusing on conservative evangelical households which will turn out to vote for Proposition 73.
Four weeks to go before November 8 election day.
Schwarzenegger has Rope-A-Doped the Unions.
Will he win?
Dan Weintraub of the Sacramento Bee gives further evidence, CTA seeking $40 million loan.
A sworn declaration in a lawsuit over the CTA’s recent members’ dues surcharge says the union already has spent the entire amount it expected to generate over three years from the $60 fee to fight the governor’s initiatives and is negotiating for a $40 million line of credit. You can read the affidavit here.
Will the Governor score a knock-out when all of the California Teachers realize their union bosses have spent all of their money and want to borrow more?
