Well, I hope the naysayers on the Right are happy. Troubleshooter Mart Emerald released all of her donors under $100 today and clearly there wasn't much to write home about. As expected, her low-end donors included a couple dozen retirees, about half a dozen union organizers and business agents, a handful of non-profit types, a couple of independent writers, and a few interesting Republicans. (Do the names Horsman or Roth sound familiar?) The funny thing was how few $99 donations she received. Most under $100 looked legit... $25 or $50.

Some other interesting things to note: 3 EDCO (Trash Haulers) executives gave at $95 each (Is $95 the new $99?)

Mayor of Lemon Grove - Mary Sessom - lists educator as her job, as does Lemon Grove School Board Member George Gastil. Guess they don't want to fess up?

The Boling campaign tried and failed to sequester Marti into something rash. If this is the best they can do, then Marti can win this thing in her sleep.

As for the Lemon Grove office-holders, the positions they hold are strictly part-time, and don't pay the bills, so they have to have a day job.

yes, and you are supposed to list one's main means of support. they are both educators.
