CA Attorney Generals Office - Politics' Free Zone

Posted by Cotoblogzz 04-142010:100 AM

SAN FRANCISCO - Attorney General Edmund G. Brown Jr. announced yesterday that his office has launched a broad investigation into the California State University Stanislaus Foundation to include an examination of its finances and the alleged dumping of documents into a university dumpster, after State Senator Leland Yee asked Brown to investigate the refusal of California State University Stanislaus to turn over records, pertaining to the $500-a-plate June 25 speaking engagement of former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin at the university's 50th anniversary gala.

Allegedly, the " expanded inquiry will seek to determine whether the foundation, is spending its money to benefit the campus,... Prudent financial stewardship is crucial at a time in which universities face vastly decreased funding and increased student fees," Attorney General Brown said.

Related to stewardship, Minnesota  Gov. Tim Pawlenty and the governors of Nevada and Arizona have joined 14 Attorneys General  challenging the constitutionality of the recently enacted ObamaCare legislation.  Attorney General Brown has refused to join in stating in essence that the California Attroney General's Office is a politics' free zone. Given that California is insolvent, the Attorney General has not said how he, if elected governor will implement ObamaCare or determine whether Joe the Taxpayer's money is spent to benefit Joe, for insance.

On a related story, on March 31, 2010, the Attorney General's Office  released a report, including newly obtained videotapes, that shows some members of the community organizing group ACORN engaged in highly inappropriate behavior, but committed no violation of criminal laws, while slamming videographer James O'Keefe III.  The report did warn that the resurrected ACORN by the Name of ACCE does not fall far from the ACORN tree, however.
