Rothman donor allegedly launders contributions, can you find any others?

With the news in the paper about a campaign contributor to Mayor Elliott Rothman allegedly laundering contributions through multiple individuals, many of whom appeared to have no nexus to Pomona, it may be time to discover who else is funding our City Council candidates.

I received this information from a request to the City Clerk a few months ago and have been sitting on this for a while, but haven't gotten the chance look at the documents in detail. So I'm letting you, the readers, look at the files and determine what you find. On my scribd page, I've posted the campaign contribution logs for every incumbent council member over the last four years. (I'll be requesting the logs up to July soon.)

Tell me what you find in the comments. If I see anything I'll post it here as well. This is an open thread.

Thanks for posting this information. It is very useful to see the "cash on hand" as in indication of how much money is needed to run. The amounts are much lower than I expected; i.e., Rothman only reported having about $15K on hand over the past 2 years. Even if this doubles/triples during an election year, it is definitely possible to outspend him to unseat this bastard.

It is clear that Rothman is on the bulls-eye (even if the DA denies it) and will be charged with various levels of corruption in the near future. It is highly likely that Alfredo Solis will turn on Rothman to save his own ass. Better vote Rothman out of office before Pomona has the unenviable distinction of having its mayor walked out of city hall in handcuffs (like Upland's mayor).

Oh that Chief Romero had lived to see this. Wonder how well Linda Lowery sleeps these days.

I'm glad this is coming out; hopefully it won't be forgotten come election time. If you look at Atchleys Financial report during the same time period, it shows the same pattern of outside money-mainly Asian, coming into his campaign. All high dollar 500.00 limit stuff over and over again. At least 80% of his donations in 2008. Somethin' Screwy goin' on around here!Smelly too!
