Debate tax

The economy has tanked. Unemployment is rising. Political engagement has never been more vital. What better time then to charge admission to a political debate?

From LA Observed:
There's a candidate's forum for the 32nd congressional district tonight hosted by the Southwest Voter Registration Education Project and the Latino Professional Network at the Los Angeles River Center & Gardens on West Avenue 26. But it'll cost you $15.
But this is no ordinary candidate's forum. The event kicks off at 6 p.m. with a "complimentary" tequila tasting and ends with a dance party, with a one-hour debate tucked in between.

Oh, and the candidates are Judy Chu, member of the state Board of Equalization; state Sen. Gil Cedillo, and former Obama transition team member Emanuel Pleitez.
