Hewlett-Packard funnels more donations to Boxer than former CEO Fiorina

Hewlett-Packard Co. is the ultimate rationale for Carly Fiorina’s U.S. Senate campaign.

The Republican candidate was CEO of Hewlett-Packard for six years. She engineered the mega-merger with Compaq. She managed the “reinvention of the legendary company,” as her campaign biography says.

But in the end, Fiorina’s stormy proprietorship ended in her firing. And before that, she faced bitter criticism – from the 28,000 people who lost their jobs as a result of the merger, and from Packard family heirs who passionately believed Fiorina was wrecking a company they considered their birthright.

Today, the lingering nature of that bitterness may be reflected in campaign finance records. Four months before the election, Sen. Barbara Boxer, a liberal Democrat with no particular ties to HP, is raising more money from Hewlett-Packard sources than the company’s former CEO.

Prop 19 will bring the liberal college vote out in big numbers--and I don't see them voting for a failed CEO.

Fiorina should save her money.
Out of the 310,000 employees at HP, Boxer has so far received 7 donations to Fiorina's 3 (the author apparently can't count).

This is news?

And yea, she should just drop out now. No chance.
