Republican Congressman Darrell Issa has donated more than half a million dollars to a campaign to recall Governor Davis, a grand total of $645,000 to be exact.
The money was funneled through Greene Properties Incorporated of Vista, a company Issa and his wife own. Issa also plans to begin campaigning this weekend for Davis´ job, addressing an annual gathering of moderate Republicans near Santa Barbara this coming Saturday and talking to party members in Orange County later that day.
Recall backers must collect nearly 900,000 valid signatures by September 2nd to get the measure on the ballot during a special election this fall. They claim to have collected 587,000 signatures.
