Re: “More Evidence of Cancer in Oakland Mayor’s Race

I'm going to straight up ask this Gammon freak - from where do you get the "lavish lifestyle" name-calling? I wrote a letter for the last story this joker made up & printed in this rag, I was p.o'd that he'd call people who stay at "fancy hotels" and eat at "fancy restaurants" while fundraising people living "lavish lifestyles". So my question to this nobody is: Where do you think people throw fundraisers? Where do you think they EAT at a fundraiser? Where do YOU get off talking about fundraising, something you clearly have NOOOOOOOOOOOOO knowledge of. The simple truth is if you want to raise big bucks from rich people, you throw a "fancy" fundraiser. If you want to pass a ballot measure these days you must do a lot of fundraising. The fact that you, Gammon, don't go anywhere nice is a pretty lame excuse to throw stones at those of us who do this stuff for a living. I've done political and non-profit money raising equally and I'm not LAVISH but I throw events at Four Seasons and Ritz Carltons and pricey restaurants because if the money guys want to go there & hand you a check for 20 grand, that is where you entertain them. Don't like it? Then YOU cough up the dough needed for these charities and ballot initiatives.

What is truly funny is a guy who can't get a job anyplace better than a pimp-funded rag - I did my homework, apparently EBE's main ad source is in cash from hookers (IRS, are you listening?) - this same stooge according to my simple Google search has spent 75% of his column inches trying to nail one Don Perata to the wall. My personal favorite is the "My sources tell me Perata to be indicted tomorrow!!" That was what, 2 years ago? But gee, go ahead & keep kicking a horse that's left the stall, keep beating up a guy for trying to fight CANCER!! Oh yea, let's be totally p.o'd that he's running for mayor of Oakland - they're just LINING UP for THAT gig, huh??? Where is your equal wrath for the do-nothing tax-evader Dellums?

Gammon is a lawsuit begging to happen, somone take this guy on!!

Re: “The Cancer in the Oakland Mayor's Race

Oh my God, who is Robert Gammon & why is he writing this crap & being paid? Is he supposed to be a journalist??? Gammon, OK, since you are so feeble you need a picture book, here is how this shit works. When one is fundraising/running for office/raising money to save the whales, one frequently goes to locations where people with money like to gather. That's why one ends up staying at a 4 star hotel, as opposed to say, having Larry Ellison meet you at Denny's in Fresno & staying in their Motel 6. It doesn't equal "Lavish lifestyle". I was a pro fundraiser for years, mostly for non-profits plus a couple of elected officials. I also stayed at "lavish" hotels. Then drove home to my duplex in my Hundai.

Next, you seem to get particularly limp in your nether regions that Perata intimates he was once a Senator. HE WAS, YOU FUCKING FREAK. You think Bill Clinton leaves the "once-President" moniker off HIS fundraising brochures?

This is so disturbing on so many levels. I'm new to the bay area but from a Google search, I found Gammon has written dozens of stories on Don Perata and made wild accusations & predictions - none of which came true. I just came off a whole carny ride working for an elected in another state who was smeared by Bush leftover prosecutors AND the clowns that pass for journalists these days.

That is the other really scary part here - THIS is what is passing for journalism in a major media market!! Because of how search engines aggregate, this BS non-story will get picked up all over. Where is the oversight? Where is the professional journalist organization to officially sanction this sort of crap? Where are the lawyers to take on these sleazeball pseudo-reporters, after all, you jerks are the disseminators of information. That makes you JUST as responsible to the public trust as any public official. But I guess if Fox News can stay on the air, Gammon can stay on the rag.
