CalWatchdog Morning Read – December 1

by CalWatchdog Staff | December 1, 2016 9:30 am

Good morning. TGIT. Welcome to December. The election is over, but some of the animosity remains.

Just days ago, Congressman Darrell Issa was determined the winner in a very close re-election race — by far the toughest race of his career. We wrote about the race here.[1]

But instead of going quietly into the sunrise, Issa is suing his Democratic opponent, Doug Applegate, for what he claims were libelous campaign ads.

Issa, the richest member of Congress, is seeking $10 million in damages, and said he’ll donate to charity whatever he’s awarded by the court. The Los Angeles Times/San Diego Union-Tribune[2] has more.
