Jerry Brown Scores Endorsement from Perata’s Employer

The powerful California prison guards’ union has endorsed Jerry Brown’s candidacy for governor. The endorsement should come as no surprise considering that one of the prison guards’ union’s main political consultants over the past year has been ex-state Senator Don Perata, a longtime ally of Brown. The prison guards have paid Perata at least $409,000 since early 2009. Perata also has donated at least $15,000 to Brown’s campaign this summer, according to the Trib.
