Question #1 for Richard Pombo
I am still waiting for the press covering Pombo to do their job and make Richard Pombo answer some lingering questions. Since they aren't getting it done, we need to start pushing these questions out there.
Over the last several years, you have paid your wife and brother over $450,000 in campaign funds; you rent a luxury Lincoln for yourself with funds from your congressional office budget; and you take a yearly vacation to Reno paid for by special interests.
Especially outrageous are the campaign payments to your wife since you have a joint checking account. The effect of this is that a piece of every special-interest campaign check you get from corporations such as Exxon Mobil, Shell Oil, Anadarko Petroleum, finds its way into your pocket.
In essence, you are being paid by the very special interests you regulate. How do you justify this personal self-dealing and appearance of outright corruption to the voters of your district?
This is the first in a series of five.
Pombo in their Pocket now has our Pleasanton office up and running with Ed Yoon as campaign manager. The office number is 925 249-1626 and Ed's email is firstname.lastname@example.org.
