Jerry Brown (aka Governor Moonbeam) has beat out mega-spender and ex eBay head Meg Whitman for the California Governorship. It’s been cast as the costliest governors race in U.S. history, mostly because Ms. Whitman shelled out and astounding $142 million dollars of her own money on her campaign. And lost. So, I’m asking myself what did Jerry Brown have to do to defeat such a financial juggernaut? Well, this being California he basically just had to show up. Good to know there remains one state in the nation where you can’t buy your way in to political power, you still have to be born to it.
