US SENATE: When running for U.S. Senate, it's good to be the highly visible California attorney general [Phil Wilson @ LAT] - "U.S. Senate candidate Kamala Harris had a particularly good day earlier this month. In the morning, she landed endorsements from the state’s two U.S. senators and hours later, from her perch as California attorney general, she announced the arrest of an Internet CEO for sex trafficking." 

LAW AND DISORDER: Backpage.com goes on attack against Kamala Harris over prosecution [Matt Hamilton @ LAT] - "The operators of the classified ad website Backpage.com have asked a Sacramento County judge to dismiss criminal charges filed by state Atty. Gen. Kamala Harris, who accused them of conspiring to profit off the prostitution and trafficking of women and girls."

CRIME AND PUNISHMENT: Ex-California state senator faces 5 years for taking bribes [Brian Melley @ AP] - "Charged in a corruption scandal that could have sent him to prison for three lifetimes, former Sen. Ron Calderon dropped his entrapment defense, pleaded guilty and admitted taking bribes in exchange for his influence in Sacramento. As he faces sentencing Friday, though, prosecutors say Calderon is not taking responsibility for his actions and has presented a "whimsical and revisionist view of his conduct" in an effort to serve no time behind bars for graft that lined his own pockets and helped put his children through college."

MONEY MATTERS: Spending on state propositions breaks record [Alison Noon @ AP] - "Political donors have spent a record $450 million on 17 statewide November ballot initiatives in California, beating the state’s own record for the most spent on propositions appearing on state ballots in a single year, campaign reports filed Thursday show."

THE PROPS: Gavin Newsom sponsors two ballot measures, readies run for governor [Dan Walters @ SacBee] - Gavin "Newsom’s personally sponsoring two of the ballot’s 17 statewide measures, one that would legalize recreational marijuana, Proposition 64, and another that would impose new regulations on gun owners, especially on their ammunition purchases, Proposition 63."

PROP 61: Bernie Sanders: Stand up to Big Pharma greed and Washington. Vote yes on Proposition 61 [Bernie Sanders @ LAT] - "It’s unacceptable that the exact drugs that we buy in our country are sold in Canada, Britain and other countries for a fraction of the price. My urgent message is to vote yes on Proposition 61 to make medicine more affordable in California and send a signal to Washington that the whole nation’s prescription drug policies need an overhaul."

PROP 64: Some pot-growers fear a big business takeover if it becomes legal. Not these two [Robin Abcarian @ LAT] - "Unlike many of their small farmer colleagues who fear that legalization will depress prices or drive them out of business altogether, Chaitanya and Lastreto are full-throated supporters of Proposition 64, which will not only usher in an era of regulations and licensing, but also will give existing small growers a five-year head start before licenses for larger grows are granted."

PROP 67: Pity the plastic bag: Will Californians seal its fate with a ban? [Julie Cart @ CALmatters] - "The “paper-or-plastic?” checkout query was supposed to be a relic of our unenlightened past. After reviewing the scientific evidence of persistent environmental harm, California legislators in 2014 banned thin plastic carryout bags, authorizing stores to charge customers 10 cents for heavier-duty plastic sacks or paper bags. (Smaller, handle-less bags offered for produce or meat aren't affected.) But the ban inflamed the nation’s bag makers, who intervened before the law could take effect. They wielded two ballot measures to poke a stick in the eye of the Legislature and the grocery industry, whom they haven’t forgiven for switching sides to support the ban after lawmakers allowed the grocers to keep the 10 cent fee."

CA07 (East Sacto County): Questions about character dominate Northern California congressional race between Rep. Ami Bera and Sheriff Scott Jones [Sophia Bollag @ LAT] - "Rep. Ami Bera (D-Elk Grove) faces a tough reelection battle for his seat in the 7th Congressional District against Sacramento County Sheriff Scott Jones, a Republican. Bera is under scrutiny due to revelations that his father illegally funneled money to two of his past campaigns. Jones has been confronted with allegations that he sexually harassed a subordinate at the Sheriff’s Department more than a decade ago, which he denies."

$$$: California promised public employees generous retirements. Will the courts give government a way out? [Maura Dolan @ LAT] - "A case before the state Supreme Court could clear the way for reductions in public retiree benefits, which have become hugely expensive. But the outcome is “hard to predict.”"

Tax board’s executive director lost her job without a vote from elected leaders [Adam Ashton @ SacBee] — "Facing scrutiny over reports of misspending, California’s elected tax board earlier this year chose to replace its executive director with one of its longtime administrators. But the Board of Equalization did not actually vote to dismiss Cynthia Bridges. Instead, the board came to its agreement to replace her with David Gau in a closed-door meeting seven months ago, according to board chairwoman Fiona Ma."

Strange Provisions In Proposition 60 :: Fox&hounds

Proposition 60, the measure requiring use of condoms in adult films, has a couple of noteworthy provisions that could be precedent setting for future initiatives–one not so good; the other, interesting and different, if perhaps unconstitutional. One item deals with enforcement of the condom law and reinforces the idea of citizens substituting for government agencies to bring lawsuits against business concerns. The other deals with punishment for initiative proponents for bringing forth an invalid initiative.

UC Berkeley Greek groups shut down parties after sexual assaults
sfgate.com
In an unusual move, student leaders, not administrators, at UC Berkeley have suspended on-site social events held by university Greek organizations, days after back-to-back reports of sexual assaults at off-campus fraternity parties. Two female students reported separate sexual assaults near campus last weekend at fraternity functions, according to the UC Berkeley Police Department. The day after the troubling allegations became public, the IFC announced their decision to halt parties at the school ahead of Friday night’s conference matchup between the California Golden Bears football team and the visiting University of Oregon Ducks. An email from Saedi and Panhellenic Council President Divya Thomas to leaders in Berkeley’s Greek community acknowledged how the suspension could disappoint students who have traditionally drank at fraternity and sorority functions before and after football games. Since May 1, there have been 56 instances of sexual assault reported near the UC Berkeley campus, according to an online crime-mapping website, including three sexual assaults at the same sold-out Mad Decent Block Party at the school’s Greek Theatre in September.
