In addition to Norman Lear, writer director Judd Apatow and Shamrock Holdings CEO Stanley Gold are among the recent contributors to an independent expenditure committee supporting Wendy Greuel's campaign for mayor.
Apatow gave $2,500 to the committee, Working Californians, and Gold gave $10,000, according to reports filed with the Los Angeles City Ethics Commission. Other contributors include investor Beny Alagem, who gave $10,000.
Their contributions, however, are just a fraction of support that Working Californians has gotten from labor. Intl. Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Local 18 gave $250,000, and IBEW's Local 11 PAC gave $150,000.
Working Californians can accept unlimited contributions, beyond the $1,300 limit that individual donors can contribute directly to campaigns.
