It was fun and food in the Gaslamp Quarter at Lou & Mickey’s restaurant and bar for Republican state senator Anthony Cannella and his scheduler Jamie Mori and chief of staff Dillon Gibbons, thanks to the Barona Indian tribe. Each got a meal worth $27.78 on April 3, according to recently filed lobbying disclosure reports. Other Barona-sponsored outings for politicos included $24.18 meals at Island Prime for both Democratic assemblyman Ricardo Lara and his field representative Ivan Carrillo on April 13. (According to his state website, “Ricardo is focusing on strong ethical oversight over public funds and programs by ensuring the effective and efficient management of taxpayer monies.”) Mary England, GOP candidate for Chula Vista’s assembly seat, munched on food worth $15.03 at D.Z. Akin’s on June 27. GOP assemblyman Paul Cook, a candidate for Congress, did the best of the bunch, with a free dinner worth $72.75 at the tribe’s Barona Oaks Steakhouse on May 1.
