Re: “Assembly Candidate Joel Young Plays Race Card, Lies Again

Mr. Gammon,

Let’s review. Your paper has published a series of articles by Steven Tavares, a blogger who makes liberal use of the n-word on his twitter account and has stated several times on his blog that the only reason anyone is supporting my son, Joel Young, is because of his skin color. You reported allegations by a political operative, Jason Overman, but you never reported that those allegations were dismissed by the police nor that Overman withdrew his restraining order request after he had severely damaged my son’s reputation. The only stories you print about this race are negative stories about Joel. You also made your endorsement without interviewing any of the candidates. If this isn’t a coordinated attempt to discredit my son with an “angry black man” narrative, I don’t know what is. We didn’t play the race card. You did. And I have full confidence that the voters of Alameda County will see right through this dirty smear campaign. True progressives campaign on the issues. Not on a bunch of trumped up lies.
