Argus Wonders About Perata’s Crafty Ways


Now that Don Perata’s recall campaign against Jeff Denham is officially dead, the Argus has published an editorial that openly asks: Just what was Perata up to, anyway? The paper’s pet theory is that Perata didn’t want this ” embarrassing, petty, pitiful mistake” to be the last thing people remember him for. That sounds about right; The Don’s stab at extending term limits, as well as his fat spending habits, have left him looking pretty tarnished recently, and Perata may have decided to cut bait before his name really turns to mud.
