CA’s Gov. Brown under fire for rail firm campaign contribution

By John Hrabe | Cal Watchdog

Gov. Jerry Brown is under fire for the timing of a max-out contribution from a high-speed rail contractor to his re-election campaign.

Brown recently asked the California Supreme Court for an expedited review — and reversal — of two lower court rulings that have halted the state’s high-speed rail system. Just three days prior to that request, Brown’s campaign accepted $27,200, the maximum campaign contribution allowed by law, from Tutor Perini, which has more than a $1 billion in outstanding contracts with the California High-Speed Rail Authority.
