Your series on political contributions to Orange County legislators (May 22-24) has been most revealing. I'd like to congratulate The Times, but I'm not sure you'd appreciate that, given the findings of your study.
For over a year now, The Times has run waves of articles with banner headlines to chronicle the allegations against Assemblyman Gil Ferguson made by a political foe.
Now, you find that Ferguson has collected more in contributions from individuals, as opposed to "corporate interest," than any other Orange County legislator.
He also got a greater share of contributions under $100, and more from retired persons, than did any of the rest.
