San Diego’s Hotelier Political Donations

The evidence below strongly suggests that the character of the Hotelier Cabal is NOT Republican or Democrat, right or left, religious or atheist, gay or straight, or anything else of the kind. The Cabal is simply about greed and power – instigated by THREE older white men (and their agents / minions) seeking to financially influence whomever necessary in order to control and pillage our civic landscape for themselves. Note that these Cabaliers have never liked or supported any tax – until, that is, they found one they could get their hands on to serve themselves and their interests – a.k.a. the TMD tax.

The Cabal’s only cause, ultimately, is themselves. They do not act based on principles, either moral or political. Despite this, certain San Diego political factions have chosen to get in bed with these folks in exchange for money, influence and power. This is a Faustian Bargain that will haunt them. While they still have time, these organizations would be well-advised to rapidly reposition themselves away from these people, and return to the principles they have historically espoused. Now for the fingerprints in the public-arena that may help to answer the questions of Who?, What?, Where?, and Why?:
