Who's really working for the Russians?
In January, Marinelli's group started collecting signatures for a ballot initiative that would amend the state constitution.Which is why I guess he wants California to create its own...
When asked by the I-Team if he was a U.S. citizen, Marinelli replied,"Yes."
We recently spoke with him from his home in Yekaterinburg. "I'm in Russia for a number of reasons," said Marinelli. "I have personal reasons. I want to be here and I have political goals to achieve while I'm here, one of which is to build a bridge between California and Russia."
He says his personal reasons center on his marriage. "My wife is a foreign national from Russia," he said. "As you can imagine, we've had difficulty and an expensive and difficult time navigating the immigration system."
