HIGH-STAKES SHELL GAME BEING PLAYED OUT WITH UNIVERSITY
OF CALIFORNIA SEATS AS THE CHIPS
The great California Con Game announced the start of its national
tour. Ward Connerly and Pete Wilson, top spokespeople for the
deceptive "California Civil Rights Initiative", are
kicking-off the tour with an appearance in Washington, DC, testifying
before the Senate Judiciary Committee.
Pete Wilson is fixing the game so nobody wins. Wilson is being
sued by a student newspaper for his under-handed attempts to circumvent
the open meetings act and pass a ban on affirmative action in
the UC System without due process. The suit claims that Wilson
lined-up support from regents before the vote took place, a direct
violation of the Bagley-Keene Act, which requires that such meetings
take place in public.
His long-time buddy Ward Connerly is in this game and knows which
shell to pick, and he's selling this information to the highest
We have volunteers, everyday of this year who are out there
trying to use their 'connections' to raise money for this University
of California and they call up and say 'Will you give me some
special consideration on this', we have to be very careful we're
not a bunch of purists about this and that we don't cut off our
nose to spite our face so we should not be stampeded into doing
something that's harmful to the university. KFI-AM, 4/17/96
"The CCRI campaign is a disgusting attempt to trick the people
of California," said Pat Ewing, Campaign Manager. "Connerly
and Wilson are sacrificing the women and people of color in California
on the alter of big money and political paybacks."
