There is no hint that Orange County Sheriff Sandra Hutchens will seek re-election in about 1,450 days, but $7,000 immediately poured into her campaign coffers in the days after her June 8 victory.
The money likely will help pay back nearly $100,000 in personal loans Hutchens made to her campaign.
But that's not what's interesting about the funds.
The post-election contributions included government contractors, a travel service, the owner of a 7-Eleven, a Rite Aid pharmacist, a Los Angeles international business mogul, an LA County sheriff's chief and 14 individuals of Middle Eastern descent.
