Rebecca Kaplan and Barbara Parker Strike Back

Oakland Councilwoman Rebecca Kaplan and City Attorney Barbara Parker, who both had been viciously attacked in negative campaign ads by their opponents and by the police union, are fighting back with ads of their own. Kaplan began broadcasting a TV ad last night on MSNBC and other cable stations, slamming her challenger, Councilman Ignacio De La Fuente, for a series of hit-piece mailers he sent to voters that grossly distorted her record in office. Parker struck back with a hard-hitting mailer against her challenger, Councilwoman Jane Brunner, noting that Brunner is a career politician who lacks the legal experience necessary for the job of city attorney.
