Independent Voter Project, Prominent Backer of California Top-Two System, Won’t Reveal Names of Legislators who Attend its Hawaii Resort Retreat

The Independent Voter Project of California, one of the groups that intervened in every court case challenging any detail of California’s top-two system, is somewhat well-known for hosting annual weekly meetings for some California legislators. The most recent such event was last month. John Hrabe has an article about the meeting at Calnewsroom, an on-line source for news about California politics and government.

The focus of John Hrabe’s article is that the Independent Voter Project refuses to identify the state legislators who attend its event, which is held at the Fairmont Kea Lani, one of Hawaii’s most luxurious resorts. Hrabe’s article also links to other news stories on the same subject. UPDATE: see this December 4 article, in which two Democratic State Senators voluntarily revealed that they had attended the session.

    Since the legislators are required to report it, what does it matter?
