"Paycheck Protection" Effort Passes a Million; Lincoln Club, Woolley Give $50,000

Californians Against Special Interests--a political committee promoting a so-called Paycheck Protection ballot measure to ban labor unions and corporations from using automatic payroll deductions to collect campaign contributions--has continued to pick up big support from some politically well-connected San Diegans.

The group's website is already online:

"Workers are unfairly forced to contribute to politicians," it says. "This system treats public and private workers unfairly – taking their hard-earned money and giving it to politicians through political contributions."

The measure is bitterly opposed by labor unions, which argue it unfairly inhibits the way they can use union dues to communicate with members about political issues.

The committee's recent filing shows that, in addition to an original $10,000 contribution reported here two weeks ago, the San Diego GOP's Lincoln Club has kicked in an additional $30,000, bringing its total to $40,000.

On top of that, La Jolla investor, philanthropist, and public education critic Buzz Woolley, founder and benefactor of the Voice of San Diego online news site, has contributed $10,000.

In addition to the Lincoln Club support and Woolley's backing, the North County Times has editorialized in favor:

According to the group's financial disclosure for the first half of this year, the committee has raised a total of $1,002,799.75 (about $230,000 of that in in-kind contributions) and has hired Bader & Associates of Granite Bay, which handled the Gov. Gray Davis recall, to conduct signature gathering.
