Republican Candidate for California Governor, Steve Poizner, answers a reporter’s question about two large donations in 2000 to Democratic Presidential candidate Al Gore. The first $10,000 check was written to support Gore during the Presidential race. The second $10,000 check was written to help Gore pay for the recount effort as the Presidential race against Republican candidate George W. Bush, was hanging on the outcome of Florida. Poizner says that he and his wife have a joint checking account and that his wife (who is a Democrat) is the one who wrote the checks. Poizner then tells the reporter that he has been answering this question for the past nine years. Is this an attack or a legitimate issue?
