In this morning's Berkeley Daily Planet, Barry Wolfsy writes an op-ed piece coming out strong for Wilma Chan's bid to replace state Senator Don Perata. But Wolfsy's taken a rather odd tack. Raising up Chan as the epitome of "clean, progressive candidates," he then denounces the "Loni Hancock-Tom Bates machine" that is backed by the big bad "developers."
