Schwarzenegger Bullshit Watch (3)

KESQ NewsChannel 3 Palm Springs, CA: California revenue could fall short of Schwarzenegger's predictions:

"Five months into the fiscal year, the governor's finance office says California won't likely receive any of the $450 million Schwarzenegger sought from punitive damage awards. The state has also collected less revenue from Indian gaming agreements than expected."

Actually, as an ex-New Yorker, I know that a lot of politicians invent phantom sources of revenue or jack up the numbers to make their budgets. It's just that I didn't think Schwarzengger was trying to govern like David Dinkins.
