Non-profit investigative journalism site California Watch is out with a list of California donors to conservative Texas governor Rick Perry's campaigns in that state.

With no Lone Star state limits on the amount of money that can be given, Perry, now a likely GOP presidential prospect, has over the years been raking in big cash from a wealthy California contingent.

According to the California Watch list they include:

Alex Spanos, Chargers owner $15,000; Dean Spanos, ditto, $15,000; Sempra Energy PAC $5,000; Sempra Energy Employees PAC $5,000; Sempra Energy $2,500; Dan Shea, Donovan's owner and Chargers stadium backer $1,000; E Trimble, KFMB $1,000; Manchester Financial Group $1,000; and Barbara Woodbury $1,000.

La Jolla politico Bob Schuman has also been beating the bushes for Perry's presidential aspirations.

This is all so very Texas. Buy influence in the White House with some campaign contributions. Johnson did it, presumably Bush (41) did it, doubtless Bush (43) allowed it, and now Perry if they have picked a winner.
