Sac Bee Slaps Perata Again

What could Don Perata have done to piss off the Sacto Bee so much? Last week, the paper published an editorial begging the lame-duck Senate president to leave town and let his successors get on with the business of governing. Today, the paper publishes another editorial smacking him around. The piece starts off with a startling statistic: we could eliminate all $19 billion we spend on prisons and higher education, and still face a multi-billion-dollar deficit. Then, after briefly mentioning Republican state legislators’ infuriating obstinacy when it comes to raising taxes, the editorial reserves its fieriest ire for The Don.
