Bustamante to Give Millions to Fight Prop. 54
Lieutenant Governor Cruz Bustamante will use millions of dollars in donations to his 2002 campaign to fight Proposition 54. Bustamante had planned to use the $3.8 million he got from unions and Indian tribes to support his current bid for governor.
Though the action may be legal, critics have said itÂ´s wrong and have even sued over the issue.
Instead, Bustamante will give the funds to a committee against Proposition 54, the ballot measure which would keep most government agencies in the state from collecting racial data.
