So look, my personal experience with Leland Yee aside (the guy is an excellent politician and a mediocre human being, and that’s probably the nicest thing I can say about him) this is seriously money my fucking state does not have. So thanks, Yee and Schwarzeneggar. Thanks, assholes. I wish I lived in Yee’s district so I could not-vote for him.
At least the ESA is doing the right thing. Via Joystiq:
“Senator Yee and Governor Schwarzenegger wasted more than $1 million in taxpayer funds at a time when Californians could ill afford it,” said Mike Gallagher, president and CEO of ESA. “However we feel strongly that some of these funds should be used to improve services for California’s youth.”
The ESA stated it would donate a portion of the proceeds from the reimbursement to “develop after-school educational programs for underserved communities in Oakland and Sacramento.”
I get so fucking surly about this issue, you have no idea. So I’m adding a gif to calm me down.
