Citizen dupes pass bond election after bond election. Cronies stuff money in pockets in public works contracts.
One of the many reasons that drove me to leave California in 1993. I can't recall even one bond measure they didn't approve in all my time there. I voted no on every one just on general principle. It's the legislature's job to spend and tax. Putting these measures on the ballot for voters to approve was their way of abdicating responsibility and putting the blame on the populace if the economy went boom. When I used to mention to people that bonds actually had to be paid back with interest out of tax revenue I'd usually get that deer in the headlights look.
