Re: “Updated: A's Owners Give $25,000 to Perata Group After Ex-Senator Says Team Is Moving to San Jose

Bob, whether it's General Funds or Redevelopment funds, public money is public money. It's not as though RDA funds can or should be somehow exempt from the requirement to make financial sense for the people of Oakland. If baseball is such good business, it needs to pay for itself. I agree with Len that there appears something amiss when Perata can do no right, even when he's making a very very hard call to let the A's go if they need Oaklanders to pay them to stay. The idea that Oakland has the time, money, and expertise to make a stadium deal work out is just pure fantasy. there are things more important than taking tax dollars to build millionaires' workplaces.

Re: “BREAKING NEWS: Big Hollywood Money for Kaplan Mayoral Campaign

Maybe now I'll get a few MORE Kaplan mailers that all look exactly the same.

Re: “Peratistas Go to Bat for The Don

Dude, nobody has called anyone a Peratista for years. That's sooooo early 2000s.

And Brunner and Perata are so incredibly in-sync that he redistricted her out of an Assembly district she was already running for! Some allies! The "contradictions" you point out may also lead to another conclusion: you are wrong about the relationship.

And Jean's a genius to point out that Perata is trying to contact voters. What insight!

Re: “Perata Flip-Flops on Debates and Ethics Commission

You do realize, of course, that both of Perata's positions can be true. That is, it can be undemocratic to exclude any rightly-running candidates from a debate AND it can be superficial to have a debate with ten people. I don't happen to agree with the former statement, but it is not a contradiction of the latter.

Re: “Has Perata Already Broken the Spending Cap?

Recycling the last story without any new information. The atni-Perata crusade continues. Bob cannot even wait for longer than "immediately" for Tram to respond! He simply MUST get the story on the web, regardless if he even has a comment from the campaign. Why cant you just wait until you get a statement before you write?

Re: “The Perata Gang that Couldn’t Shoot Straight

Bob, if you have actual proof of involvement then show it. All this article says to me is that you suspect Perata has something to do with the mailer and the robocall. Well, you have two clear on-the-record denials from an identified source--where's the there there?

Re: “Perata and Nacho Disagree on Cops

The Mayor doesn't approve the budget or labor contracts, the City Council does, so who knows what waiting for Perata will get the OPOA. Indeed, if the OPOA loses on their completely unreasonable stance with Perata in their corner, Perata may risk weakening himself.
