BLAST FROM THE PAST: Delaine Eastin says she’ll launch education-focused bid for California governor [Christopher Cadelago @ SacBee] - “Democrat Delaine Eastin, a longtime state lawmaker who went on to become California schools chief, said Tuesday she plans to mount a bid for California governor centered on improving education.”

PROP 64: Billionaire activists like Sean Parker and George Soros are fueling the campaign to legalize pot [Patrick McGreevy @ LAT] - “Activist billionaires Sean Parker and George Soros and companies hoping to profit from legalizing marijuana in California have helped this year’s campaign for Proposition 64 raise close to $16 million, about four times the amount spent on a failed effort in 2010.”

DeLeon endorses gun control measure he once called â
sfgate.com
[...] one caught our eye the other day from state Senate President pro tem Kevin DeLeon, D-Los Angeles, titled “Keep Our Kids Safe From Guns!” That’s not surprising coming from DeLeon, who led the fight to push through several tough new gun control measures this year. [...] it was a bit surprising to see DeLeon’s smiling face over the words “Yes on Prop 63.” the ballot measure fronted by Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom. [...] we have taken care of business, and as far as I am concerned any ballot measure in the fall is irrelevant. [...] parts of the ballot measure are similar to gun control legislation that Gov. Jerry Brown greenlit this year. In late October, DeLeon endorsed Prop. 63, saying, “because we must send a powerful and united message to the national Gun lobby that California will not capitulate to political bullying or compromise the public safety.”

Activists critical of SF chief-selection process
sfgate.com
Activists criticized the selection process for the next San Francisco police chief, which they said could give Interim Chief Toney Chaplin an unfair advantage, during a Tuesday night Police Commission meeting. About a dozen residents present at the meeting at City Hall told commissioners they were against Chaplin being selected, arguing that only an outsider could bring necessary reform to the department. The first half of the Police Commission meeting was open to the public, but the subsequent session on the chief selection process was made private, angering the attendees who made comments against Chaplin and asked for transparency. The group, mainly members of San Franciscans for Police Accountability, accused commissioners of purposely hiding more qualified applicants from the public. Referring to the Police Officers Association, Bob Gorringe, co-founder of the activist group, said, Chaplin is a bad choice for many reasons. First of all, he was endorsed by the POA ... an institution that is losing political clout because of its intransigence. School officials at Colorado State University’s online Global Campus confirmed in September that Chaplin had received a degree from the institution, ending speculation over his education.
