Special-Interest Spitzer Spends $301,247 or $5.84 Per Vote; Pauly Spends $20,034 or $0.86 Per Vote

Posted by The Rock of OC on June 12, 2012

Nguyen and Emami granted HBK one last post about the Third Supervisorial District but they also granted me one last post about the race between Deborah Pauly and Todd Spitzer.

Half-Term Career Politician Spitzer didn’t even wait for election night to end before “He also confirmed that he plans to run for Orange County district attorney if the office is open in 2014.” http://www.ocregister.com/news/pauly-357524-spitzer-county.html

The great columnist, Steven Greenhut, called Spitzer out on it: http://www.calwatchdog.com/2012/06/06/spitzer-already-disses-his-voters/

Special-Interest Spitzer spent $301,247 to get 51,607 votes, which equals $5.84 per vote.

Pauly spent $20,034 to get 23,305 votes, which equals $0.86 per vote.

If Pauly had spent $301,247, her $0.86 per vote rate would have produced more than 350,000 votes.

If Spitzer had spent $20,034, his $5.84 per vote rate would have produced just 3,400 votes.

 

It’s clear the Third Supervisorial District race was another example of big money from unions beating the people.

However, it’s only a matter of time before the people rise up and fight back.  The people of Wisconsin have already risen up.  When will the people of California?
