Is PG&E Money Going to Google so that Web Searches for “Janet Reilly” Send People to “Not Janet Reilly.com?”

[UPDATE: Well, no, it seems. See Byron's comment. A mystery solved. But I got to tell you that a unique ID number would solve this problem. That way, we could all invoke Thomas Paine without confusion...]

Get up to speed on the whole NotJanetReilly.com issue right here.

Now, who’s paying Google to send searchers to Not Janet Reilly, a tiny website that would get no attention but for a Google “Sponsored Link?”

Oh, it’s Common Sense Voters, SF 2010?” But who are they?

Are they “CommonSenseSF” and/or the “Coalition for Reliable and Affordable Electricity and/or PG&E?”

Don’t know. But the big beef against Janet at NotJanetReilly appears to be the whole Public Power / Community Choice Aggregation issue, one that PG&E would seem to have an interest in. See?

Now, I’m not surprised to hear that District 2 rejected Public Power in the past, but I wonder:

Who would win a popularity contest in D2 right now – Janet Reilly or PG&E?

That’d be something for some area Pigs Giraffes & Elephants(who haven’t been having a good year, to say the least) to consider, mmmm?

    I took a look at the two committee’s and they are entirely different groups that are not connected. Looking at the finance reports, PG&E is not a contributor to the “Common Sense Voters” group. You can see all the contributions at the Ethics Commission site here: http://nf4.netfile.com/pub2/?aid=sfo

    Thanks Byron. I guess I always think of the state FPPC when I think of who regulates this kind of thing.

    “Common sense” is the search term
