Prop 32 - Munger's & Siebel's Buddies Fined

Original post made by Hmmm, East Palo Alto, on Oct 25, 2013

Look what happened to Siebel and Munger's secret out of state friends - 2 nonprofits - who were funding Proposition 32 & against Proposition 30 (the defeated proposition to restrict union activity & the prop to raise taxes, respectively): The The Fair Political Practices Commission fined them 1m. The money from these two AZ nonprofits - 15m - was washed several times before it ended up impacting our politics here.

The FPPC also ordered the two groups that donated the $15 million to pay the state an amount equal to what they improperly spent on the California campaigns.

Many wealthy Californians are on the list of contributors, including some in San Francisco.
