Dellums Aide Caught Up in Chauncey Bailey Case

Before he was assassinated, Chauncey Bailey was enmeshed in a power struggle within Your Black Muslim Bakery. That’s the conclusion of yet another terrific San Francisco Chronicle story by reporter Jaxon Van Derbeken. If you haven’t read it yet, Van Derbeken’s piece gives a great overview of the events that led up to Bailey’s murder. It provides, for the first time, real insight into a plausible motive for why the Oakland Post editor was killed. And the story raises yet more startling questions about the judgment of Oakland Mayor Ron Dellums and Congresswoman Barbara Lee.
