Demand Ann Ravel & McManis Faulker Reveal the Dark Money Funding Behind Their Lawsuit

On October 24, Mercury News reporter Emily DeRuy wrote that a lawsuit was filed against Santa Clara Mayor Lisa Gillmor.  It alleges that Gillmor filled out her economic interests forms incorrectly -- which turns out to be a false allegation - according to the Santa Clara County District Attorney.

Was a gullible reporter duped? The real story is that “dark money” (undisclosed donors) may be using the judicial system to influence a local political campaign. The irony is Ann Ravel -- a vocal opponent of political dark money -- is the McManis Faulkner lawyer using judicial dark money.

Ravel should be honest and disclose who is funding a frivolous lawsuit, especially because it may be an NFL team -- the San Francisco 49ers -- trying to secretly influence local politics in the city where their stadium and headquarters are located.

If you support transparency and oppose dark money being used in our political or judicial system, please sign the petition.
