Jarvis Taxpayer Group Snubs Spitzer

[1]Steven Greenhut: Despite the Orange County Republican establishment’s backing of pension-spiking union ally Todd Spitzer for the board of supervisors, the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association[2] has endorsed Spitzer’s long-shot opponent, Deborah Pauly. The Jarvis association even returned a $1,000 donation from Spitzer, who has been showering money from his central committee account on political groups.

The Jarvis group is the major taxpayer group in the state, and Spitzer has been hostile to Jarvis in the past and is something of the Anti-Taxpayer candidate given his retroactive pension-spiking deal and pro-union activism. At least some conservatives are expressing principle and not just going along with the candidate they think is going to win. Ironically, Spitzer was speaking at a TEA Party rally this week. I was going to make a snarky comment, but this seems to speak for itself.
