Is Alex Padilla Running for State Senate or Chairman of ENRON?
Surely you’ve seen the release touting Alex Padilla’s fundraising “lead” over opponent Assemblymember Cindy Montañez.
What you may not have noticed is the math his campaign used would make Ken Lay blush.
In fact, Padilla used misleading math to inflate his cash-on-hand number by nearly $70,000.
Padilla is carrying over $25,000 in debt, and also included over $45,000 in general election contributions that he is prohibited by law from spending in the primary.
This Reality-Based Accounting cuts his already minor “lead” in half.
With tricks like these, it’s no wonder the Los Angeles City Ethics Commission hit him with the largest fine it its history.
