Ignacio De La Fuente and Don Perata Engage in More Questionable Dealings

Even in private life, ex-state Senator Don Perata spurs questions about potentially corrupt dealings. The San Francisco Chronicle recently noted that Oakland Councilman Ignacio De La Fuente had been on Perata’s payroll and now Perata is lobbying on behalf of a company that’s trying to win a lucrative public contract that De La Fuente plans to vote on. In addition, Bay Area News Group reporter Josh Richman recently noted that a campaign committee that Perata controls continues to pay cash to several of his longtime cronies – supposedly for working on Prop 29, a statewide measure on the June ballot.
