Perata Group Uses A’s Money to Attack Quan

A political group with close ties to Don Perata used $25,000 in donations from the owners of the Oakland A’s to help fund two last-minute, hit-pieces against Councilwoman Jean Quan, campaign finance records show. A’s owners Lew Wolff and John Fisher, who desparately want to move their team to San Jose, made the large donations to the Perata group after the ex-senator said that the A’s planned relocation to San Jose was a done deal. Quan and Councilwoman Rebecca Kaplan, who are both running for mayor of Oakland against Perata, have advocated strongly for keeping the A’s from leaving.
