Who gave money to Bustamante?

The folks at Red County/OC Blog had fun looking at Tom Umberg’s and Benny Diaz’ campaign finance reports, so I thought, just for kicks, that we would do the same with Carlos Bustamante’s report:

  • Some guy named Anthony Fanticola gave him $1,500. He gave Matt Fong a thousand in 1998.
  • Allen Baldwin, of O.C. Housing Corp., gave him a $100
  • A towing company called B & D Towing gave him $250
  • OC Supe Bill Campbell gave him $1,500
  • Citywide Mortgage gave him $1,500
  • The Committee for Improved Public Policy gave him $1,500
  • Dwight Manley, who I think is a sports agent, gave him $1,500
  • Some company called CR&R gave him $1,000
  • Another towing company, called Balcaceros & Davalos, gave him $250, via their owner
  • Ingardia Brothers Produce gave him $250 – I guess they are not involved with produce trucks
  • The President of Douglas Hyundai Isuzu gave him $1,500
  • William Lyon, of Lyon Homes, gave him $1,500
  • Benjamin Mendoza, of Kelly’s Body Shop, gave him $1,000. Quid pro quo?
  • The O.C. Automobile Dealers Association gave him $1,000. More quid pro quo?
  • Acosta’s company, Ralph Allen & Partners, gave him $500
  • PCI Parking Concepts gave him $1,500
  • Saddleback Turkey Ranch gave him $300. Figures. They know turkeys when they see them.
  • And a bunch of lawyers and insurance men also gave him a lot of $$$
