Citizens to Save California v. FPPC (Cal. Ct. App. - Dec. 8, 2006)

Citizens to Save California vs. The California Fair Political Practices Commission. With Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger intervening to join the battle against the FPPC.

Arnold and Citizens to Save California win. And Justice Raye affirms. Holding that the FPPC didn't have the statutory power to close a loophole that allowed candidates to circumvent the Political Reform Act by using "ballot measure" committees controlled by the candidate to amass election contributions.

California is saved. Let the celebration begin.
