Quoted in this piece in the Press Enterprise

People who give big to political campaigns often have something to gain through a favorable relationship with an elected official, said Jessica Levinson, a professor at Loyola Law School in Los Angeles who specializes in campaign finance and ethics.
“I think it raises appearance questions,” said Levinson, a member of LA’s ethics commission. “Clearly it’s permissible (but) it makes it look like politics is a game for wealthy people because most people can’t give $10,000.”
