Wow, more than $3 million for Marty Block. That accounts for his numerous and clever cartoon TV ads that show a yellow school bus advancing on the Capitol dome in Sacramento with a voice-over that says, "Marty Block, an educator for Assembly." And there's another one that says something like "Marty Block wants to build a college in Chula Vista. His opponent wants to build a power plant. Marty Block, an educator for Assembly." Slick.

Marty Block is the worst kind of politician - well funded, party-owned, and arrogant. But he's also vulnerable. KICK HIM OUT.

The term "educator", when used by political candidates generally means that they will prostitute themselves to the teacher's union as the union is putting up the money for their candidacy.
