Help Comes in Many Forms

Sep

2003

Lt. Gov. and Gov. candidate Cruz Bustamante’s approach when it comes to corporate interests isn’t helping his party or his own cause. Want to get cynical? Keep reading that soon-to-be-ex Gov. Davis handbook, particularly that section where you borrow from Peter to screw Paul.
Bustamante is criticizing the state’s businesses saying they can do more to help. He’s probably right.
But it’s hard to avoid thinking that by “help,” Bustamante means “contribution,” something along the lines of the $2 million he’s getting from a San Diego Indian tribe — technically a sovereign nation — that just happens to be in the casino business.
This is another facet of the left’s dilemma. Big money — the kind needed for TV ads, vital to any campaign — can only come from a few places.
