Iowa Independent: Iowa companies invest nearly $250K in California ballot measure

Excerpted from this post at Iowa Independent

Supporters of Proposition 2 cry foul at late disclosures ... Thirteen
Iowa companies have made nearly a quarter of a million dollars in
donations to "Californians for SAFE Food - No on Prop2," a coalition
organized to fight a ballot measure amending the state's health and
safety code in relation to the confinement of livestock. The
donations, most of which were only recently disclosed by the
organization, have become the subject of a complaint with the
California Fair Political Practices Commission. "Yes! on Prop 2 -
Californians for Humane Farms," a group supporting the ballot measure,
filed an initial complaint on Sept. 3 against the United Egg
Producers, Inc., the U.S. Poultry & Egg Association and No on Prop 2
that charged the entities were hiding major donations by filtering
them through corporate channels.
