I remember one telling me he had to buy his own equipment because the stuff supplied by TFD was out of date and in poor condition. That would have been easy to vote for. Even so, it should be well separated from a Vision type measure.

Was there ever a disclosure of who the deep-pocket backers are?

(answering own question)  Oh, the taxpayers.

So is lobbying / politicking with tax money even legal?  There's currently a DPS employee in hot water over something similar.

We spent $202M on the police department and $24M on public education. That's not progress.
