GOP candidate for San Diego mayor and city councilman Carl DeMaio raised a total of $541,990 during the first half of the year, according to his campaign disclosure filing posted online today by the city clerk.

Total expenditures were listed as $90,593.48, with cash payments of $26,286.99 and unpaid bills of $61,266.20. Cash balance at the end of the period was $515,703.43.

Big donations included $500 each on June 22 from four members of the Molasky family of Las Vegas, including family patriarch Irwin Molasky.

As we've reported, DeMaio's office has been working closely with Molasky's company to push forward with an FBI headquarters building Molasky is developing in Sorrento Valley.

Molasky, a former associate of the late mob figure Moe Dalitz, was an original partner in the La Costa resort, and was a plaintiff in that firm's libel suit against Penthouse magazine in the 1970s.

Update: An additional $1500 was contributed on June 22 by three Molasky employees with Las Vegas addresses.

Matt,

Great catch with this article. Do you think it is odd or hypocritical for Carl to be so supportive of this new taxpayer-funded government building, which appears to be way more expensive than it needs to be, but he was vocally opposed to the City building a new City Hall (another crappy project)? If you haven’t yet, maybe ask him why this project is so great and the other one was so bad (other than, you know, the campaign contributions)?

This comes as no surprise. Wow -- another candidate bought by the Molasky patriarch. I looked it up and that scum Ken Cornell also contributed for Molasky, I'm sure. Wow -- that was clever. Isn't that illegal?
