A big boo at PG&E for paying something like $55 per voter to strike down clean energy in San Francisco. But yay for everyone else!

This is great. But let's not forget others like Magic Johnson, Dianne Feinstein, Samuel L. Jackson, etc., etc. who made big contributions by recording ads for us and in other ways. It's not just about the $$$.

Thank you for posting this. It's so great to see this. I'm most proud of the CA Teacher's Association. As a California teacher myself, I was very happy to see that we donated over $1.3 million! :)
