E-26

Happy Thursday! The rain is expected to arrive late tonight, and SacTown is forecasted to get 1.5 inches. The deciding game between the Dodgers and Nationals is at 5:08 PST on FS1.

SUTTER UPDATE: "Sutter read your heartwarming thoughts/prayers. Cheered him up so much that he ate his first meal in 5 days!#suttercomehome"

The independent expentures keep rolling in, yesterday's reports are below the classifieds. 

The list of possible candidates for attorney general has increased:

  • Mike Feuer, LA City Attorney
  • Dario Frommer, former assemblymember and a fellow UCD law grad
  • George Gascon, SF DA
  • Joshua Groban, UCLA law lecturer and senior advisor to Jerry Bown, covering legal and judiciary issues
  • Anne Gust Brown, lawyer and wife of Jerry Brown
  • Bob Hertzberg, member of the senate, well respected on both sides
  • Dave Jones, insurance commissioner
  • Clark Kelso, professor of law at McGeorge and a Republican nominee appointed to insurance commish in 2000 when the vacancy arose after Chuck Quackenbush was compelled to resign and moved to serve as the state's chief information officer under both Davis and Schwarenegger. Easy confirmation. 
  • Adam Schiff, member of Congress and a former prosecutor. Generally lliked by both sides in DC, which is a feat.

PROPOSITIONS: Next10 and IGS at UC Berkeley have a new interactive website on the 17 propositions. 

CA07 (East Sac County): GOP campaign ad overreaches on deeds by Ami Bera, Scott Jones [Sean Cockerham] - "Connecting Bera’s campaign with “dirty money” is fair, but linking Bera’s trustworthiness with his father’s criminal behavior ignores the fact that prosecutors found no evidence that Bera knew what his father was doing."

CA24 (Central Coast): Congressional candidate argues his support for Donald Trump wasn't an endorsement of Donald Trump [Javier Panzar @ LAT] - "Justin Fareed, who is looking to replace outgoing Rep. Lois Capps (D-Santa Barbara), is trying to walk back comments he made during the primary campaign when he said he supported Trump."

CA29 (East San Fernando Valley): Two Democrats are on the ballot for Congress in this San Fernando Valley race — but only one is running [Christine Mai-Duc @ LAT] - "Between July 1 and Sept. 30, Alarcon reported raising just $29.80 in contributions. He has just $140.40 in his campaign account, according to a report filed with the FEC."

AD66 (Torrance): Republican assemblyman cries foul over lawn signs that put Trump's name next to his [Christine Mai-Duc]:

Assemblyman David Hadley (R-Manhattan Beach) says the bright red signs reading "TRUMP HADLEY" started popping up in his coastal Los Angeles district over the weekend.

Upon closer inspection, ".com" is written in tiny white type below the block letters, and a disclaimer shows it's paid for by Hadley's opponent, Democrat Al Muratsuchi. For months now, Muratsuchi's campaign has maintained the website hadleytrump.com, attempting to link the first-term Republican to Trump.

Trump Hadley Sign

FAIL: Effort to overturn California gun bills at ballot box fails [Jim Miller @ SacBee] - "Opponents of the legislation signed in early July had 90 days to collect 365,880 valid voter signatures to qualify referendums on the bills for the 2018 ballot. Organizers turned in an average of roughly 166,000 signatures to qualify referendums on the six measures, less than half of the number required, according to a state tally." 

SMOKIN'Tom Steyer, starring in TV ads for tobacco tax hike, invested in tobacco companies [Christopher Cadelago] -  "Farallon Capital Management, the San Francisco-based hedge fund Steyer ran until late 2012, when he left to focus on boosting alternative energy, counted among its investments shares in UST, Inc, according to records mandated by the Securities and Exchange Commission. The former holding company’s subsidiaries included U.S. Smokeless Tobacco Company, makers of Copenhagen and Skoal. UST was acquired by Altria, makers of Marlboro cigarettes, in a deal worth more than $10 billion."

. . . Ex-New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg is backing California's cigarette tax proposition [Liam Dillon @ LAT] - "Former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg contributed $500,000 to the Proposition 56 campaign, an initiative to hike the tobacco tax by $2 a pack."

In Florida, Donald Trump rips 'radical activists like Tom Steyer' [Christopher Cadelago @ SacBee] - "Trump, rallying supporters Tuesday in Panama City, Fla, for the first time wrapped Steyer into his criticism of Democratic rival Hillary Clinton, charging that she’s received millions from donors “who want to shut down American energy altogether.”

By "American energy," he is talking about coal. Uh, we produce tons of natural gas and oil, and also have wind, solar, and thermal energy.

THE STAGE: ‘Chessman’ explores crucial moment for Brown family, California death penalty [Alexei Koseff @ SacBee] - "The new play "Chessman" features former Gov. Pat Brown and current Gov. Jerry Brown as characters. Director Buck Busfield discusses the challenge of casting famous historical figures."

NO SELFIES: From SOS: "The Secretary of State’s office has historically taken the position that the use of cameras or video equipment at polling places is prohibited. Although there has been recent media coverage surrounding the use of cameras at polling places and AB 1494 regarding ballot “selfies” has been signed into law, our guidance will remain unchanged until January 1, 2017, when the new law goes into effect.

MONEY MATTERS: State watchdog unveils online complaint system [Taryn Luna @ SacBee] - "“The electronic complaint system is just one step in our efforts to improve our use of technology at the agency,” said Jodi Remke, chair of the California Fair Political Practices Commission. “With the election we do get a surge in complaints and we’re excited to roll this out now.”"

I'm not a complainer, but I could spend the next week filling out that form from what I have seen this cycle.

SAD: A Korean community in ruins after the Blue Cut fire: 'We've traveled the world only to end up in hell' [Ruben Vives @ LAT] - "When the wildfire swept through the West Cajon Valley — where a Korean community believed to number about 70 families has taken root — it scorched 36,274 acres and destroyed about 105 homes and 216 other structures. Among the losses were jujube farms and a prayer retreat."

SF gets $11 million federal grants for transit, pedestrian safety
sfgate.com
San Francisco will receive $11 million from the federal government for projects to encourage carpools, time traffic signals for transit and pedestrian safety, and test driverless passenger shuttles at Treasure Island. The grants, to be announced Thursday by the U.S. Department of Transportation, come from a fund that is usually distributed to cities and states to manage highway congestion, said Tom Maguire, sustainable streets director for the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency. “We’re going to use the money to advance transit first and Vision Zero,” the city’s 10-year plan to eliminate traffic fatalities by 2024, Maguire said. City agencies are trying to improve pedestrian safety by focusing on the most dangerous streets and intersections, improving roadways and signs, stepping up police enforcement and launching education campaigns to get more drivers to yield to pedestrians. New apps or other high-tech mechanisms could help link commuters at the curbs with would-be carpool drivers, said Darton Ito, the MTA’s deputy director for innovation. The traffic-management plans include a future toll for drivers from the Bay Bridge to Treasure Island, a fee that would increase during peak traffic periods, said Tilly Chang, executive director of the San Francisco County Transportation Authority, which will oversee transit for the island. In a statement, he said the federal grants would “utilize advanced transportation technology to address traffic congestion on our streets and allow for a smarter and more equitable transportation system for all San Franciscans.”
