Prof. Levinson quoted about flow of donations to agency officials by those whose contracts they approve

Associate Clinical Professor Jessica Levinson discussed with KPCC-FM the legality of large donations made by a contractor to candidates on a municipal water district in the story, "Tracking the money flow between Central Basin Water District and Tom Calderon."

"Most people give contributions, not because it makes them feel warm and fuzzy inside, but because they think there is some way that they can benefit from this candidate being in public office," said Jessica Levinson, a professor at Loyola Law School who specializes in election law and governance issues.
