Foreign Interference in Our Elections

by Mark Krikorian

The president obviously thinks it’s a big problem, so I wonder what he thinks of filmmaker James Cameron’s ad against (Paul Chesser’s description) “California ballot initiative Proposition 23, which would stop the state’s extreme global warming emissions law (Assembly Bill 32) until its unemployment rate falls below 5.5 percent for four consecutive quarters”:

I don’t know anything about the substance of the issue, though my inclination would be to assume Cameron’s full of it. But what’s interesting is that Cameron is a foreigner, a Canadian citizen, who withdrew his application for U.S. citizenship after Bush won reelection in 2004. So what business does he have telling Americans how to vote on anything? Do Americans appear in Canadian political ads?
