Dear California Candidates: Have Somebody Proofread Your Web Pages!


Tim Donnelly, candidate for Governor: "After five years, he started his own small business, providing solutions to his customer’s manufacturing problems."  According to this sentence, he had exactly one customer.  No wonder he did so badly.

John Perez, candidate for Controller:  "His prudent fiscal leadership helped eliminate the structural deficit that led to a half billion in savings to finance the state’s debt."  So did the structural deficit really lead to half a billion in savings?

Phil Wyman, candidate for Attorney General: "He has served as the California Vice Chairman of the Assemblies Committee of Higher Education."  It should be "Assembly's Committee.."

Kamala Harris, Attorney General: "Before the Supreme Court found portions of the 1996 Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) unconstitutional, Attorney General Harris was joined by 14 other Attorneys General in a brief that urged the overturn DOMA."  There are some words missing at the end of that sentence.

Ron Gold, candidate for Attorney General: "He supports legislations that will allow undocumented residents to register in a State sanctioned program that will let them stay in California and work."  Legislations?
