Correction Regarding Robert Bisno's Influence on Santa Ana Politics
We must apologize for two huge errors we made in our recent post regarding developer Robert Bisno's campaign contribution love affair with SanTana councilmember Claudia Alvarez. We had reported that Bisno and his friends contributed $36,300 to her failed 2006 Assembly race, but we were grossly off. The real figure is $42,900--just Google Bisno with the names Transaction, EMG Properties, Hammerstein, and Andrew Tapper and mix 'n' match on this website. And Bisno didn't donate $20,000 to SanTana's Measure D, which would allow Alvarez to run for a third term--as Orange Juice! reported yesterday, the figure is actually $40,000. So the total Bisno has raised for Alvarez in the past two elections affecting her isn't $106,300; it's $132,900. Our sincerest apologies to Bisno and Alvarez for the error.
