Government Union Already Dropping Big Money For John Leos

This morning, this blog wondered out loud how much the Orange County Employees Association would spend in a second attempt to elect John Leos to the Anaheim City Council.

We already have an answer.

According to the campaign reports filed today  by the OCEA-sponsored “Committee to Support John Leos for Anaheim City Council 2012” show the government employee union’s IE committee contributed $50,000 to its “Support John Leos” committee on Sept. 17.

The OCEA’s committee has already spent $21,849.09 for Leos: on slates, polling, mailers, campaign consultants.

Actually, $12,000 hiring Tulchin Research for polling.

And $5,000 to Tell That Story, a Los Angeles-based consultancy that is apparently charged with running this effort — a departure from OCEA’s past usage of Doug Herman of The Strategy Group.

There’s also a $1,747 payment to a slate called “United Taxpayers of Orange County” of Orange, CA (haven’t heard of this one).
