The goose and the gander
Through a special election (that costs $60 million to hold), California conservatives are trying to making it impossible for unions to donate to political causes without getting permission from all their members.

If these people are so adamantly opposed to any intrusion into the sphere of the individual, why don't they go whole-hog and stop corporations from making any political donation without the consent of every stockholder?
