"In election spending, Disneyland puts its thumb on the scale in Anaheim, its company town"

Four candidates for the Anaheim City Council have won the endorsement of Mayor Tom Tait, a fierce critic of Disney. They’re facing $203,000 in campaign spending opposing their election from a network of 10 local groups that have received financial support from the company. Meanwhile, four candidates reportedly backed by Disney, including two incumbents, have benefited from $865,000 in spending on mailers and other campaign support by the same network of groups.
