Re: [vox] [billjones@billjones.org: Budget Debate]

Spamming is illegal in California.  You can find the statute at 
http://www.spamlaws.com/state/ca1.html.  A relevant Slashdot article 
is at http://slashdot.org/article.pl?sid=02/01/03/1934239.

As it relates to the statute, it seems to me that Jones's email can be
construed as an "offer" of "services" (governorship of CA), and that 
he could be prosecuted for this.  However IANAL.

My suggestion: call his opponent's campaign with the information.
Might be interesting to also call the attorney general's office.
