Schwarzenegger and Bloomberg Team Up To ReDistrict

As if strange bedfellows were only a Hollywood term, tomorrow Gov. Schwarzeneggerarnie.jpg and New York Mayor Mike Bloomberg will pose, speak and otherwise hang out together to convince Californians to vote Yes on Prop. 11.bloomberg.jpg

Now why Bloomberg should have any interest in Prop. 11 is a good question.

It’s a California initiative. New York has nothing to do with it. But they’ll be there nonetheless tomorrow at 2:15 p.m. at the Los Angeles Area Chamber of Commerce, 350 S. Bixel St.

Prop. 11 will take away legislators power to draw their own district lines so they can guarantee their own reelection. According to the initiative, Prop. 11 will let an independent citizen’s commission draw fair district lines so we can hold politicians accountable and vote them out when they put special interest needs before those of voters.

Maybe Arnie will give Mike some bodybuilding poses.
