If Arnold jumped off a bridge, would you?

From the Phil Angelides for Governor campaign:

We've always thought the Schwarzenegger Administration is a joke. And apparently so does Jay Leno.

Perhaps that's why Leno invited Schwarzenegger to appear for a few laughs on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno alongside supermodel Heidi Klum and a Las Vegas circus act on Wednesday night.

There's only one problem with that - it appears to violate the FCC rules and regulations regarding equal time for candidates during campaign season.

This is where you come in. We've already contacted The Tonight Show with Jay Leno about Phil appearing on the show, but we think they need a little extra nudge.

Governor Schwarzenegger's exclusive appearance on The Tonight Show constitutes a violation of the equal time rule - an appearance by a candidate on a program that reaches all of California's voters and provides favorable treatment to that candidate.

In order to remove the appearance of any bias, we've asked The Tonight Show to have Phil appear or - even better - invite both candidates for Governor to appear for a second mini-debate. So far, NBC has not responded to our request.

We're not the only ones concerned about Governor Schwarzenegger's appearance. Yesterday, Congressman Xavier Becerra also sent a letter to the FCC, noting NBC's violation of the law. But we need more people to speak out!

The only thing that's not funny is the Governor's contempt for California voters: No time for more than one hour-long debate, but plenty of time to pal around with his Hollywood friends.
