What in the world makes anyone think that these "unelected" private citizens won't be made impressionable by the free ballgame tickets, the $1,000 lunches, the Christmas baskets and the plane trips that the "elected" officials will be certain to "bless" them with in order to see that they are obligated to return the favor?? The fact that they will be required to "report" such "gifts" has never worked for any group in the past, so why should it start working now?

How are they inter-related and what does this reveal about these politicians and their party?

Those funding Proposition 27 should be ashamed of their efforts that stand in the way of free and fair democratic elections!

Oh, I don't know. But it certainly seems like it would work better than having the district lines Gerrymandered by the brother of seated California Congressman.
