Environmentalists and Consumer Attorneys Fund Campaign Against Joel Young

Two progressive political groups — one representing environmentalists, and the other, consumer attorneys — are funding an expensive and hard-hitting campaign against East Bay Assembly candidate Joel Young. The campaign led by the California League of Conservation Voters and the Consumer Attorneys of California has focused on the numerous controversies surrounding Young, including accusations of domestic violence, violent threats, and the fabrication of endorsements. The campaign, which is using the name California Alliance, also has blanketed the East Bay with mailers, highlighting reports in the Express about Young’s troubles, including an endorsement that called Young “unfit for office.”
