And the 1st Donor To Districts Campaign Is…Liberal Oakland Laywer Who Sued Anaheim!

morris baller captionFor anyone still suffering from the delusion that the campaign for by-district council elections in Anaheim is some home-grown, kitchen-table, grass-roots effort, may I present the inaugural contribution to the Committee for District Elections – sponsored by One Anaheim: a check for $3,500 from one Morris Baller, a liberal litigator from Oakland.

And who is Morris Baller?

He’s an $805-an-hour partner in the “public interest class action” law firm of Goldstein, Borger, Dardarian & Ho  the same firm which – along with the ACLU — represented Jose Moreno and his allies in their attempt to force the adoption of by-district elections via litigation.

It’s the same Morris Baller who pocketed about $250,000 in fees, courtesy of Anaheim taxpayers, as a result of the settlement agreement that put by-district elections on the November ballot. So we have the city cutting a check to one of Moreno’s left-wing lawyers, who then kicks back $3,500 of his winnings to Moreno’s comrades at the OCCORD-run Committee for District Elections.

Neat-o.

Ironically, Baller argued in this September 4, 2012 letter to the City of Anaheim that he and his clients Moreno et al considered putting the question of by-district council elections to a city-wide vote to be inherently discriminatory toward Latino voters. But fiddle-de-dee! With the Left it’s all about the ends – the means don’t have to be logical or intellectually honest.

The campaign report for the Committee for District Elections, which shares an address (and according to the above 497 filing a phone number) with the left-wing political advocacy group OCCORD, will be available at the end of the month. Anyone want to guess how much of the reported donations will come from left-wing unions, individuals and organizations? And how few of those will hail from Anaheim?
