Bob Perry (from Houston) Has Ties to Law Firm Pushing Electoral College Vote Changes in California

From the Mercury News via Matt Ortega - We in Texas know him for many, many crooked schemes, but of course nationally Perry is known for being a financier of the Swift Boat Veterans.

Lawyers behind a California ballot proposal that could benefit the 2008 Republican presidential nominee have ties to a Texas homebuilder who financed attacks on Democrat John Kerry's Vietnam War record in the 2004 presidential campaign.

Charles H. Bell and Thomas Hiltachk's law firm banked nearly $65,000 in fees from a California-based political committee funded almost solely by Bob J. Perry that targeted Democrats in 2006. Perry, a major Republican donor, contributed nearly $4.5 million to the group Swift Boat Veterans for Truth that made unsubstantiated but damaging attacks on Kerry three years ago.

The Perry-financed committee in California, the Economic Freedom Fund, continued to spend money this year, mostly on legal expenses tied to an ongoing legal dispute in Indiana over phone calls made to voters in 2006. It lists the Sacramento law office's address as its home and its Web site directs contributions to the firm, Bell, McAndrews & Hiltachk. In addition, Bell serves as the committee's treasurer.

Hiltachk has been pushing a proposal to revamp the way California awards its electoral votes, a change Democrats claim would rig the 2008 race. He and Bell are the sole officers of a new political committee, Californians for Equal Representation, that is raising money to place the plan on the ballot in June.

As Matt Ortega comments

Perry’s involvement reaffirms what many in California and elsewhere have long suspected — the electoral vote gambit by the former lawyers for the California Republican Party are not operating in good faith but rather on a partisan mission to steal 20 electoral votes.

Conventional wisdom holds that the Democrats will retake the White House next year and GOP strategists sweating out the 22 Republican seats up for grabs. But as this dirty trick by Republicans demonstrates, party operatives do not plan on going down quietly in 2008.
