BREAKING NEWS: Perata to Buy Mayoral Election?

UPDATED (see below): Don Perata and his political allies in Sacramento may have found a legal loophole that will let the former state senator spend as much money as he wants on the Oakland mayoral election. Normally, Oakland mayoral candidates are prohibited by law from violating the city’s expenditure cap on elections, which currently is about $379,000. However, actions taken by a shadowy political group in Sacramento with close ties to Perata may allow him to spend far more than $379,000 without worry of breaking the law.
