A couple of the names should be particularly familiar to San Diegans:
Mark Fabiani of La Jolla, a veteran Democratic political adviser who also counsels the Chargers, is helping Moore fight off attacks on the movie's credibility.
Howard Kaloogian, a Republican ex-assemblyman from North County, is chairman of a group that has been trying to persuade theater chains not to exhibit the film.
The battle over 'Fahrenheit 9/11' rages against a backdrop of other recent films that played politics and polarized moviegoers. "
