California senators’ final-month fundraising down from 2013

by - August 28, 2014

The California Senate’s curb on end-of-session fundraising has sharply cut into the flow of political cash to senators’ campaign accounts, even as some in the upper house run afoul of a rule that bans contributions from donors that have Capitol lobbyists. The Senate adopted the fundraising blackout in June, after a string of ethics scandals. Two Senate Democrats, Leland Yee and Ron Calderon, face corruption charges, and a third, Rod Wright, was convicted of lying about where he lived when he ran for the Senate in 2008. All three have been suspended from the 40-member house, with pay.
