    New feature in CW

    Ok...last of my new stuff for the is a new feature we will have every week in CW on the latest in political donations:

    One week after inking a deal with Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger to add 3,000 new slot machines to their casino, the Agua Caliente Band of Cahuilla Indians flexed their political muscle this week with either $1,000 or $2,000 donations to five sitting Assembly members, including Mimi Walters, R-Laguna Niguel, Joe Coto, D-San Jose, Juan Arambula, D-Fresno, Lori Saldana, D-San Diego, and Shirley Horton, R-Chula Vista, as well as six would-be Assembly members: Tom Berryhill, Fiona Ma, Mike Duvall, Anna Caballero, Jean Fuller and Jose Solorio. … As the Legislature considers major environmental legislation in the final weeks of session, Sempra energy has donated to a several Republicans, including Assembly members Horton, ($1,000), Greg Aghazarian, R-Stockton ($1,000), Guy Houston, R-Livermore, Mark Wyland, R-Del Mar ($1,250), Dave Cogdill, R-Modesto ($1,500), and Mod Squad Dems Arambula ($1,000) and Coto ($1,000). Sempra also tossed $1,000 to Assembly hopefuls Paul Krekorian and Caballero. … Speaking of oil companies, the Plains Exploration & Production Company chipped in $600,000 to defeat Proposition 87, the oil-tax initiative, which makes them the biggest contributor of the week. The company Web site describes them as "an independent oil and gas company primarily engaged in the upstream activities of acquiring, developing, exploiting, exploring and producing oil." Wait a second, did they say exploiting? … Coming in second place are the Operating Engineers Local Union No. 3, which gave $250,000 to Californians to Improve Traffic Now, a committee dedicated to passing Prop. 1B, the transportation bond. … Another big donor was the National Audubon Society, which gave $100,000 to help support Proposition 84, the environmental bond. … Meanwhile the California Nurses Association contributed more than $24,000 to support Proposition 89, to stop all these donations … and former Senate leader John Burton donated $1,000 to Phil Angelides.
