ELECTIONS CODE
SECTION 20200-20203




20200.  As used in this article "person" includes a firm,
association, corporation, campaign committee or organization.



20201.  It is unlawful for any person that includes in any part of
its name the name of any political party that was qualified to
participate in the last preceding primary election, to directly or
indirectly solicit funds for any purpose whatsoever upon the
representation either express or implied that the funds are being
solicited for the use of that political party unless that person
shall have previously obtained the written consent of one of the
following: a member of the national committee from California or the
majority of the members of the national committee if there are more
than two national committee members from California, chairman of the
state central committee, executive committee of the state central
committee, or executive committee of the county central committee of
the party whose name is being used in the county in which the
solicitation is to be made. If the county central committee of the
party in that county does not have an executive committee, the
written consent of the chairman and secretary of that county central
committee is sufficient.
   All persons soliciting funds in accordance with this section shall
be furnished with adequate credentials bearing the name of the
solicitor and a copy of the written consent that bears the signature
of the person authorizing the solicitation.



20202.  It is unlawful for any person who solicits funds for the
purpose of supporting or promoting any candidates or committees to
include in any part of its name the name of that candidate or
committee unless that person shall have previously obtained the
authorization of the candidate or committee or the candidate's or
committee's designated agent to use the candidate's or committee's
name in the name of that person.
   Authorization by a candidate or committee shall not be construed
as rendering the person soliciting funds a controlled committee as
defined by Section 82016 of the Government Code.



20203.  Any person who solicits or receives contributions on behalf
of any candidate or committee for the purported and exclusive use of
that committee or the candidate's election campaign and who is not
authorized by the candidate or committee or the candidate's or
committee's designated agent to do so, shall include a notice in any
fundraising communication, whether through any broadcasting station,
newspaper, magazine, printed literature, direct mailing, or any other
type of general public advertising, or through telephone or
individual oral fundraising appeal, clearly and conspicuously stating
that the person is not authorized by the candidate or committee and
that the candidate or committee is not responsible for the actions of
that person.
