Bates-Hancock Machine So Scary, We Cry Every Night

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.” Perhaps Wolfsy hasn’t noticed that Chan’s most powerful ally, who’s endorsed her and worked with her for years, is none other than the big boss man and developer’s wet dream, Don Perata himself.
