BREAKING NEWS: Big Hollywood Money for Kaplan Mayoral Campaign

Hollywood film producer Bryan Zuriff has pumped $148,000 into a new committee that is backing Councilwoman Rebecca Kaplan’s candidacy for mayor, campaign finance records show. The new committee was formed by Oakland Port Commissioner Michael Lighty and the California Nurses Association, which also has reported spending $66,000 on Kaplan’s behalf. The $214,000 in last-minute spending for Kaplan represents the first major outside expenditures for a mayoral candidate other than ex-senator Don Perata.
