While football has long been political in San Diego, it may have reached a new level in the city attorney’s race.
Chargers linebacker Shawne Merriman will be the headliner for City Councilman Brian Maienschein’s March 8 fundraiser in the councilman’s campaign for city attorney.
The event, which will be held at a residence in Poway, costs $320 per person or $640 per couple, the maximum campaign contributions allowed under campaign finance laws.
Whatever Maienschein can raise will add to the $250,000 he already has stowed away from his uncontested run for City Council in 2004.
