10 days ago or so, Mayor Tom Tait recorded a robocall to voters, in which he attacked Measure D as being backed by “outside special interests.”

The robocall was an independent expenditure from the Mayor’s re-election campaign committee, and therefore triggered a requirement that IE expenditure report his campaign is mandated to file must also include all donors who have given his campaign more than $100 since 2014.

An examination of this report shows that 93% of the campaign money Tait has raised this year for his re-election are from outside of Anaheim. Isn’t it disingenuous to attack Measure D as a tool of “outside special  interests” with a robocall paid for by outside special interests, some of whom have contracts with the City of Anaheim?
