Are schools more corrupt than other public entities?

"San Diego Community College District tustees considered an unusual proposal yesterday to REPEAL A CAMPAIGN CONTRIBUTION LIMIT THAT ALREADY EXCEEDS those of San Diego city and county races."

Eleanor Yang Su wrote in her July 13, 2007 San Diego Union Tribune article that the SDCCD limit is already seven times larger than San Diego Unified School Distict and City College of San Francisco.

But here's what surprised me:

"The limit, passed in a 3-2 vote by the board in 1999, is THE ONLY CAMPAIGN CONTRIBUTION LIMIT FOR ANY COMMUNITY COLEGE DISTRICT IN THE COUNTY"!!!!!!!

There is, however, a whole world of campaigning that is unaffected by these contribution limits: churches and the unions.
