She's gonna have a hard time proving it.
As if it wasn't bad enough that she's funded more than 96% by the Texans for Lawsuit Reform during the last reporting period, Naomi has some other interesting associations that should be discussed. Unfortunantly mainstream media hasn't even blinked an eye about her contributions from the TLR.
But here's another interesting twist. Turns out Gonzalez is using an esteemed pollster to help out with her campaign. According to this campaign finance report, Naomi's in-kind contribution for polling totalled more than $26,685.
The firm used was Baselice & Associates out of Austin.
Here's a little background from the Texas Tribune about Baselice. They even have a nice little video there as well.
He's referred to as "perhaps the top Republican pollster in the state" by the San Antonio Express-News. The piece also says "He specializes in polling for Republican candidates..." and "One of his main clients is current Texas Governor Rick Perry."
Talk about Republican darling.
That's very intersting that Naomi says Norma is a Republican darling when you consider she's 96% funded by the TLR, which was characterized by a guest on my program, Alex Winslow, Executive Director of Texas Watch, as "96% is essentially buying a seat in the legislature".
