Why Did Rothstein Care About Redistricting in California?
But chances are, Rothstein was swayed by the glamour of that ballot measure's spokesman: Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, for whom Rothstein had fund-raised.
For the investors in our audience, sorry, but it appears that since Rothstein's quarter-mill went to the campaign and not directly to Schwarzenegger the Guvernator is not inclined to have it returned.
I put a call out to opponents of Prop 11 to see if they have a better theory for why Rothstein invested so much money on this campaign.
