Political Consultant-Turned-Assembly-Hopeful Steve Glazer's Ties to Tobacco, Big Oil
Glazer Advised JobsPAC, special interest political action committee for corporate interests, on electing candidates that work against progressives
It's not often that a professional political consultant runs for public office. And when they do, it is worth checking who've they advised to get a roadmap of whose interests they'll pursue if elected.
Who has has signed political consultant-turned-Assembly District 16 candidate Steve Glazer's paychecks? As the infographic here highlighting Glazer's work for JobsPAC shows, it's Big Oil, tobacco companies, insurance companies and other corporate donors -- hands down the largest special interests in Sacramento.
Perhaps that's the reason these same interests are pouring money into his Assembly race (not to mention $120k in TV time bought by a developers campaign, perhaps as a thank you for his political consulting work in destroying a local forest and trees for a golf course.)
So the next time Steve Glazer says he's spurning special interests, take a look at his political benefactors -- and his client list. Apparently his values align with theirs.
