    Some wealthy guy in California is buying a congressional seat for his granddaughter. Wave of the future, I guess. I hope she’s a “progressive.”

    The younger Jacobs, 31, has a relatively thin resume — she worked in international relations and then served as a policy adviser on the Hillary Clinton campaign. But in addition to the money that her grandparents put into Forward California, the Qualcomm heiress also put $1.5 million of her own money into the bid, all over the last three months.
