Dark, Denim Moves On Prop 30- a surprise to the Gov.?

that ex officio uc regent-also Governor- Jerry Brown, has got to be wondering about these latest revelations:

"Members of the Fisher family, founders of the Gap clothing chain, plowed more than $8 million into the dark money campaign to defeat Gov. Jerry Brown's tax increase, Proposition 30, and to support the anti-union Proposition 32, in the 2012 elections, according to" see: Gap Clothing Chain Founders Were Behind California 'Dark Money' Campaign
and LA Times: List Unmasks Secret Donors to California Initiative Campaigns
Those contributors include owners of the Gap Inc., for which California First Lady Anne Gust Brown was once a top executive,... Gust Brown formerly was the company’s chief administrative officer.

Gust Brown is now on the Governor's staff- chief adviser and de facto chief of staff. She has been mentioned as a close friend to the Fisher family for years and years. (She inducted Doris Fisher into the California Hall of Fame -the video for that event seems to have been scrubbed long ago, perhaps cuz this also happened at that event.) So, this is surprising to them, right?

maybe something to ask over lunch? or, would you rather...
remember...a recent no to bad denim ideas all around. (btw, last pair were a strange boot cut with label stamped 'made in Pakistan', go figure. wish for the vintage to make a comeback.)
