Synopsis: GREED * POWER * MONEY * POLITICS Fed up with business as usual, Californians recalled Governor Gray Davis in 2003 and replaced him with a celebrity who pledged to clean up government. The Recall's Broken Promise details how Arnold Schwarzenegger then shattered political fundraising records, attacked campaign finance restrictions, crossed ethical boundaries, and how politicians of both parties have killed needed reforms.

From the Inside Flap: “The price of power is highest in California, site of the most expensive elections in the nation, where powerful interests have had a stranglehold for decades. So when a former bodybuilder and actor celebrity publicly promised not to become entangled with those special interests, it frankly had a hollow ring. And sure enough, in his first term as governor, Arnold Schwarzenegger was no Terminator when it comes to smarmy insiderism and big money politics as usual. These issues are historic and systemic, as campaign finance expert and nonpartisan reformer Derek Cressman explains in this important book, and he has informed, thoughtful ideas about how citizens can help tame the beast of corruption.” – Chuck Lewis, Founder of the Center for Public Integrity “A no-holds barred exposé of how powerful interests use campaign contributions, lavish gifts from lobbyists, and outright deception to take over the government of the world’s sixth largest economy. Cressman also points readers to the tools they need to start taking back our government.” – Peter Coyote, actor/author “Insightful, well-researched work. This book illuminates the sordid history of campaign finance and the politics of ballot measures. It is a comprehensive look at the role of campaign dollars in California initiative and recall politics. A must read for both concerned citizens and students of direct democracy alike.” – David McCuan, Professor of Political Science, Sonoma State University “No wonder Arnold spent all those years in the gym—he knew there’d come a time when he’d be lifting all that special interest money in Sacramento! This book lifts the rug in the governor’s office to show that Big Money still rules in California politics.” – Jim Hightower, author, radio commentator, and publisher of The Hightower Lowdown
