This article has a MAJOR mistake. I'm surprised there was no double-checking by the editors, especially given the rather large monetary amount in question. If one checks the recent filings of the Republican Party of San Diego County at the Secretary of States webpage, one would find that the $68,500 mentioned in this article is in fact a non-monetary contribution and not a payment. In otherwords, it was a donation TO the Party and not an expense to this Skin Care group. This was likely for their annual Lincoln-Reagan Dinner.
Thanks for the note. The correction was made in this week's column.-Matt Potter
there were no goodie bags on the tables! just coupons/certificates. kind of a grey area wouldn't you say in getting to claim one gave 68,500 in funds? tax deduction for what? most were thrown on the floor. i doubt many if any were redeemed.
about 50 tables. were there 8 people or 10 at a table? from my calculator that makes 150 or so dollars a coupon? come on......
