The Terminator’s Logic
“Earlier in the day, Mr. Schwarzenegger made an appearance at the California State Fair and Exposition near Sacramento, where he also lauded the accomplishments of California’s workers, but insisted he would not accept money from their unions. “I will never take money from the special interests, from Indian gaming, from unions or anything like that,” he said.
Mr. Schwarzenegger has reneged on early campaign promises not to accept campaign contributions from anyone. State disclosures show he has collected more than $1 million from companies and individuals with business before the state. “I get donations from businesses and individuals absolutely, because they’re powerful interests who control things,” he said today.
He declined to explain the difference between special interests and powerful interests.”
