Why aren't things like this bigger news?
A very interesting read in today's San Francisco Chronicle. Seems that Governor Schwarzenegger has declined Secretary of State Shelley's request for $25.4 million dollars in federal "voter outreach" funds, which comes about "...as the secretary of state released documents showing that earlier spending on voter outreach efforts using federal funds sometimes took a partisan slant
..." and that newspapers have reported "...Shelley awarded some of the money to Democratic Party activists and political allies."
A Republican in San Francisco (Yes, he's under deep cover) relays his tales of interest...
...ok, "interest" is a strong and subjective word but you get the point.
