John Morganelli Sitting on $332,000 Campaign Fund
What amazes me, when I look at his list of donors, is that everyone funds him. J.B. Reilly and Joe Topper were good for $10,000. Though Abe Atiyeh is suing Reilly, he gave $5,000 to Morganelli, too.
Why developers? DAs don't have anything to do with development projects. Atiyeh tells me that he always gives to Morganelli because he is tough on crime, and that helps him to keep high property values.
Bottom-feeding bloggers tend to cancel that out.
With this kind of money, Morganelli is in position to start a statewide run down the road. If he stays where he is, he can influence elections in a big way.
