Perata’s Haul from Prison Guards Grows

Oakland mayoral candidate Don Perata received another $60,000 from the California prison guard’s union in the past three months, raising his total pay from the union to at least $469,000 since early 2009. In newly filed campaign finance reports, the prison guard’s union said it paid Perata $20,000 per month from July through September for “campaign consulting,” even though the union reported that it mounted no political campaigns during that time.
