    Why and how did the U of California legally contribute to Obamination's campaign???

    A state funded university giving money to a specific political party/nominee???

    CA state taxpayer money going to a national political figure?

    Not really.

    CEO's and BOD give to Mitt.

    The janitors and secretaries and the regular workers give to Obama.

    One group Republicans idolize.

    The other Republicans despise.

    Guess which is which.

    Besides the point that Obama's top donors are 10x Mitt's, when you get further down Obama's list you probably have the same donors. It remains to be seen how universities can afford to contribute so much to candidates when the States are going bankrupt and tuition is outrageous. IMHO they either lower tuition or those big tax-free endowment funds get taxed. I also think that the state legislatures need to approve all political donations since the universities get taxpayer dollars.
