Rudy in California

Up to no good:

CA Dem activists filed an FEC complaint 10/1 about a $175K donation given to a GOP-friendly CA ballot initiative by Rudy Giuliani '08 regional finance chair Paul Singer.

The complaint seeks FEC and DOJ opinions of whether Singer's money possibly violated the Bipartisan Campaign Reform Act. Named as the complaint's respondents are Giuliani and Singer, a NY hedge fund billionaire and GOP donor who's very tight with the ex-NYC mayor.

Singer indirectly gave $175K in seed money to the creators of The Presidential Election Reform Act, which if passed by voters in 6/08 would change CA's electoral votes from winner-take-all to being allocated by congressional district.

Singer confirmed to New York's Daily News last week that he funded the initiative's group, Californians for Equal Representation.
