BREAKING NEWS: Prison Guard Union Pays Perata $260,000

The powerful California prison guard’s union paid Oakland Mayoral candidate Don Perata and his son, Nick Perata, at least $260,000 to work as “campaign consultants” last year. According to recent filings with the Secretary of State’s Office, a significant portion of that total — $180,000 — came after Perata began actively running for mayor of Oakland. The most recent payment to the former state senator was $20,000 on December 9, 2009.
