Who knew it was illegal?

So I got an e-mail on Thursday from a friend for Carlos Illingworth who intends to run for the Montebello Unified School District Board of Education.

The e-mail was an invitation to attend “Carlos Illingworth’s Poker Tournament Campaign Fundraiser.” It was sent from Jessica Mihal, who said she is IIllingworth’s friend.

Then on Friday (the next day) I got this e-mail from Mihal saying the tournament is canceled:

“Who knew – but apparently it is not legal to have a gambling tournament as a political fundraiser… 🙁 “

Illingworth may want to rethink who he puts in-charge of his political fundraisers.
