Bonnie Neely garners $10,000 from So Cal Developer.

Guess I don't have much to add to that. Oh, except, Go Local!

I think it's about time you revealed your scorecard on the harbor commish. Honeymoon's over. Tell us what you've accomplished.

Rob Arkley donated $25,000 to Meg Whitman's campaign but won't pay his debt to the City of Eureka. What are your thoughts on that, Richard?

...and HCDCC doesn't take out-of-town money?

Ohhhh, the spin-meisters are out in full force over this one. "move along now, nothing to see here..."

It's becoming very amusing really.

So far Marks has been a breath of fresh air on the harbor commish. Maybe there is hope for humboldt dems too.

"I have only been on..."

Is that the first excuse I hear of the long anticipated, much belated political career of Richard Marx? Keep em coming Harbor Master.

The Times Standard reported today that Virginia has gotten more than $10,000 from local developers, whose demands are sure going to affect you and me more than a SoCal developer's will. Seems like you have a double standard to me, Richard.

6:11-I have been an elected official for quite a few years, just for your information. Samoa Peninsula Fire Department Director and Humboldt County Democratic Central Committee Member. Anonymous: What have you done for our community?

8:26pm-$10,000 from local Developers? Show me that! Then I will answer. Maybe half of that total. And why would a Southern California Developer shell out $10,000 600 miles north? Answer that! Because she is so "transparent" or a "local business advocate?" Give me a break. Keep spinning, your wheels are stuck.

Richard, Don't be sucked in. You know you are doing an honest and unboased job. Do the right thing and ignore the aholes. Keep it up, there is a reason you have so mush support!

Richard, you sound like a sore loser. Get going on the harbor and stop licking your wounds over your loss to Neely.

What is this? A contest to see who can hang on the monkey bars the longest. How childish can we get?
I'm sure the owners of the harshest statements are just bored and have nothing better to do than bulley. I'm going to get the playground supervisor.

Actually Bass only received one donation from a developer (Kramer).

The same developer that is "saving" the Old Town Bar & Grill from the wrecking ball.

Whether you like developers or not like developers they are the ones that built your home, office building and church.

Whitman makes millions off of peddling Porn and pharmaceuticals ;



Meg Whitman: “I am absolutely, 100% not in favor of legalizing marijuana for any reason.” (What about to increase tax revenues?) “That is the last reason that one should think about legalizing marijuana.” (BTW: It was good to see Whitman answer the question at a brief press avail in San Francisco after our Calbuzz Rant yesterday. Our follow-up to Meg is this: By “any reason” do you mean you oppose the medicinal use of marijuana?)Marijuana is addictive . It makes no sense .

Gubernatorial candidate Meg Whitman, who as eBay CEO proved her mettle as a hardcore fetish pornography entrepreneur, did not respond to an inquiry Wednesday about whether as governor she would seek to continue a California program that, until recently, subsidized the production of smut.

Next week's SF Weekly includes an exclusive report about a California economic development program that has routed tens of thousands of dollars in subsidies to an Internet pornography producer. Continuing -- or even bolstering -- this practice would seem a tailor-made campaign issue for Whitman, who bills herself as a business whiz ready to revive the California economy. She backs her economic talk with real chops: In 1998, just as eBay was preparing an initial stock offering, Whitman oversaw the creation of a special eBay site exclusively for the sale of pornography. The move was prescient -- though much porn consumption has shifted to streaming Internet video, there's still a market for specialized fetish material best sold in DVD -- or otherwise physically-shippable form.
In this spirit, Whitman's "eBay Adults Only" brainchild is a place where, on April 15, $5.94 got one into the bidding for a DVD titled Redneck Trailer Torture. With $12 one could vie for "porn star Brianna Ryder's personal g-string," and $7.99 put one in the running for the DVD Grandma Has Sex With Everybody! Anal, Oral, Group!
By mid-day on April 15, Whitman's adults-only Web-auction brainchild had more than 87,000 items for sale, with prices the $5-$20 range. If this is typical, a back-of-the-used-thong calculation suggests an eBay porno-based income of several million dollars per year, potentially funding dozens of California jobs.

On Wednesday SF Weekly asked Whitman spokesman Mitch Zak whether, given Whitman's smut-peddling success, the porn-industry could count on her support as governor. Zak had not responded by press time.
