T Boone just wants the best...but for whom?

T Boone wants the taxpayers of California to borrow $5 billion...and guess who will benefit?

Billionaire T. Boone Pickens, who earned his money as a Texas oilman, has now topped $10 million in contributions to Proposition 10, the alternative energy bond on the Nov. 4 ballot.

All the money has come through Pickens' company Clean Energy Fuels Corp., which has donated $10.75 million to the ballot effort after a $3 million donation on Thursday.

Pickens' company provides natural gas for vehicles -- the types of vehicles that would be eligible for rebates should Proposition 10 pass.

Clean Energy gave another $4 million to the campaign earlier this month.
