Of all the money wasted on all the campaigns, former eBay head and
aspiring GOP California governor Meg Whitman takes the questionable
cake, having spent $140 million of her own money, or more than any other
power-grubbing politico ever. Suggestions are flying as to what else
she could have done with her loot, from buying tacos for all to hosting free medical clinics. The kicker: she's still losing. And she spent 90
grand a month for a political strategist who got her an ad that endorses her opponent, Jerry Brown.
Whitman's campaign could have covered: "the $10 million slashed from
community clinics, the $6.4 million from services to low-income
seniors, the $25 million from economic development, the $132 million
from services for seriously emotionally disturbed students, the $18
million from drug treatment and $22 million from Medi-Cal."
