“Cardoza was hosting a big fundraiser at the Preakness at Pimlico Race Course in Baltmore on May 16 for his Moderate Victory Fund PAC. No wonder he didn’t want to admit why he was skipping the UC Merced commencement. The fundraiser is listed on the Sunlight Foundation’s Web site….
It turns out that in the case of Cardoza, it’s worse than a snub. The Merced congressman didn’t appear for the first graduating class at the UC campus in his hometown because he was holding a fundraiser at a race track across the country. Bad form, congressman.”
