In the brief but wild recall campaign that rewrote California history, major candidates spent close to $88 million -- nearly a third of it by Republican Arnold Schwarzenegger, who was elected the state's 38th governor.
Schwarzenegger, whose personal wealth is estimated at more than $100 million, spent more than $10 million of his own money on his campaign but also relied heavily on support from business executives, real estate developers and financial institutions, according to final spending reports covering 2003.

"The Schwarzenegger campaign got so much free media attention, if you take that into account on top of all the money he was spending -- his numbers would be stupendous," she said.
$88 Million... A lot of money...
Being a notorious celebrity... Priceless!!!
Stealing a historic grassroots recall effort from conservatives... Grand Larceny!!!
Looks like both BustaMecha and Schrarzenegger mangled the stupid campaign finance legal restrictions.
What ever happened to "A Government Of Laws, Rather Than Of Men?" The concept has been sacrificed to the "politics of expediency" that Republicans are trying to out-do the Democrats with. Maybe it would help if our laws were fewer and simpler while being better enforced.
Shazzam! That would even lessen the demand for litiguous schiester lawyers!!! (I know, it's not an original thought since Shakespear)
