Well, happy Monday to you. I hope you had a good weekend. With all going on, my head is about to explode.

It's going to be another crazy week in Sacramento, even though the Legislature is on Spring Recess. The Sacramento "black lives matter" group has announced three rush-hour protests at the DA's office (9th and G) on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. They are calling for prosecution of the two officers involved in the shooting.

The funeral for Stephon Clark is on Thursday, and the Rev. Al Sharpton reportedly will be in attendance. It's likely to be a volatile situation because of the funeral. The flyer for the rally says 3-5:30 at the DA's office and the organizers are well meaning as evidenced by the leader who was brought on to the Kings floor, but as we saw last week, other activists linger and it has been getting more volatile as the evening progresses.

The family this morning called for a national day of mourning on Thursday in observance of the funeral.

There are Kings home games on Tuesday and Thursday starting at 7pm. Fortunately, the Kings have responded well in support of #BlackLivesMatter and they now know that it's a vulnerable location, and had much better security yesterday.

Plan your evening commute accordingly. It's unlikely that the rally will be limited to the DA's office. If you normally leave downtown heading west to 80 or I-5, it may be best to head south and get on business 80 there, as it's very possible we'll see the entrances to the west closed off, either by protestors (last Thursday) or by police (last Friday) trying to keep protestors off the freeway.

AURAL PLEASURE: On the California Politics Podcast, John Myers and Melanie Mason talk about the historic ascension of Toni Atkins (D-San Diego) to the position of President Pro Tem of the State Senate, the latest poll on the governor's race, and the passing of Jerry Brown's chief of staff Nancy McFadden.

U.S. SENATE: George Skelton writes that, while Kevin de León has energy and proven effectiveness, Dianne Feinstein still has the clout and hasn't shown signs of slowing down.

CA50 (East San Diego): The SDUT posts a map with bar, restaurant and cigar lounge visits paid for by Congressman Duncan Hunter's campaign account.

A review of records that Hunter’s campaign filed with the Federal Election Commission between March 2008 and November 2017 shows at least 301 transactions totaling $138,666 at bars, cigar lounges, liquor stores, bar-dominant restaurants and similar businesses. Of those transactions, 247 charges totaling $123,786 were made at establishments in Washington, D.C.

Of the 247 transactions Hunter’s campaign reported at Washington, D.C. bars, pubs and similar businesses, about 30 percent of the charges were less than $100 — unlikely to be a largescale political event like a fundraiser.

Of the 72 charges below $100 at Washington, D.C. bars, almost half were at Bullfeathers, which has a reputation as a popular hang-out for lobbyists, next to House office buildings.

The NRCC really doesn't need this in what should be a Likely Republican seat.

THE OC: In the Register, Jordan Graham reports that the National Republican Campaign Committee is opening an office in Orange County, echoing a similar step recently by the Democratic arm, the D-trip. "The entrance of the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) to Orange County is the latest evidence of the intense national focus on the region, which is a key battleground in Democrats’ efforts to retake the U.S. House of Representatives."

The competitive races currently in the GOP column from Orange County are:

  • CA39 (Fullerton - Royce-open)
  • CA45 (Irvine - Mimi Walters)
  • CA48 (Huntington Beach - Rohrabacher)
  • CA49 (Oceanside - Issa-open)

This goes beyond just the need to avoid four pick-ups by Democrats in the race for control of the House. Orange County has long been one of the most reliably suburban Republican regions in the country, and the significance of the races means that much more for both parties. 

TARGETING: Christine Mai-Duc reports in the Times that campaign advertising targeting usually isn't as complicated as that alleged to have been done by Cambridge Analytica. 

Want to reach only 50- to 65-year-old women who are independents, comment on liberal Facebook groups and are interested in environmental causes? That's easy. Want to show a candidate video to likely Republican voters in their 30s who are parents of school-age kids and own a home? Campaigns can do that, too.

Frankly, campaigns can target profiles of voters who subscribe to Guns and Ammo or National Geographic. This is nothing new and happened long before social media. And, when you swipe your grocery discount card, the chain knows what kind of shopper you are by whether you buy Budweiser or Sierra Nevada. 

Cambridge Analytica just used improper methods to get and parse data and sold their clients a bunch of crap.

HEALTH CARE: In the Bee, Angela Hart and Taryn Luna report that members of the Assembly Democratic Caucus announced a series of bills late Friday to provide an alternative to the controversial SB 562 (Lara and Atkins). Assembly Speaker Anthony Rendon has held up the single-payer bill, largely because the costly bill came from the Senate without a financing mechanism.

Five Assembly lawmakers late Friday released 14 bills they're expected to promote as a package this year. Together, they would offer financial assistance to people struggling to pay for soaring insurance premiums and out-of-pocket costs, require health insurers to spend more on patient care instead of profits, create a public insurance option and offer health coverage to undocumented immigrants.

But they will likely run into similar political and financial problems faced last year by Senate Democrats, who passed the Senate Bill 562 single-payer health care bill in June without a way to pay for its $400 billion price tag. The move kept the bill alive and allowed Senate Democrats seeking election to higher office to say they voted for single-payer, an issue that has become a litmus test in the minds of progressive activists in the Democratic Party.

Recently, Senate President Pro Tem Toni Atkins has acknowledged that SB 562 is incomplete and is willing to look at alternatives. The California Nurses Association and its supporters insist that they have financing amendments, but they can't insert them in the bill while Rendon keeps it bottled up in Assembly Rules Committee.

From what I've heard, the amendments would rely on federal waivers to shift existing Medicaid funds and Affordable Care Act subsidies to the new state single-payer system and a payroll tax on employers that in theory would offset existing health care insurance paid for by employers and employees.

Two things:

  • Only the most strident supporters of the bill believe the Trump Administration would give California (not its favorite state) the waivers to create a single-payer system that it likely opposes.
  • Rendon doesn't want to put his caucus members on the line to vote for what would likely be a $200 billion payroll tax if the system is doomed without the federal waivers.

CRISIS COMMUNICATIONS:
 Over the weekend, things blew up for the Top 200 San Francisco-based law firm Munger Tolles & Olson, when on Saturday it was published on Twitter through a tip by a would-be summer law associate of a binding arbitration clause that is totally tone-deaf in the era of #METOO.

The contract, required to be signed by employees including summer associates, provided that all employment-related claims must be submitted to mandatory, binding arbitration and that employees were forfeiting the right to a jury trial. This included sexual harassment, race, gender and age discrimination, and the Americans with Disabilities Act.

Of course, there was also a non-disclosure requirement, like we've seen in the legislative cases over the last couple of years. Stormy says "Hey, I got that."

By the end of the day yesterday, the firm back-tracked and tweeted "Munger, Tolles & Olson is committed to the highest standards of conduct. In this case, we were wrong, and we are fixing it. We will no longer require any employees, including summer associates, to sign any mandatory arbitration agreements."

The firm has a whole section on their website bragging about its diversity and inclusion.

Indeed, #persist, and as the Kings/Celtics warm-up shirts said yesterday, addressing the Stephon Clark shooting, "Accountability. We Are One."

TRADE WAR, WHAT IS IT GOOD FOR? For the Bee, Emily Cadei looks at the California industries that are most fearing the impact of a trade war with China. 

GIVE ME YOUR POOR, YOUR TIRED...JUST KIDDING: The Bee's Phillip Reese and Steven Magagnini write that the number of Syrians seeking resettlement to Sacramento has dropped significantly in the Trump era. "The capital accepted 275 Syrian refugees during the 2015-16 fiscal year, according to U.S. State Department data obtained by The Associated Press. So far this fiscal year, it has accepted zero."

LEAD PAINT: The MercNews's Paul Rogers writes up the proposed ballot measure that would shift the cost of lead paint clean-up from corporations to state taxpayers.

THE ACE: In the Times, Mark Z. Barabak writes up Democratic strategist Ace Smith's new book chronicling the story of Negro League all-stars who were sent to Dominican Republic to play against a national team sponsored by the dictator of the Republic, and how the book ties Smith's love of baseball and politics drew him to the story. He wrote the book in between helping elect some of the highest profile California Democrats.

TAXING MATTERS: For CALmatters, Dan Walters looks at the numerous local tax measures and the fine line between the allowable publicly funded "information" efforts and the private efforts to help pass the measures. As an aside, he writes:

All but a handful of the previous tax hikes were approved, although one failed sales tax, in Coalinga, was unique. It lost by just 33 votes because of an overwhelming vote against it by residents of Coalinga State Hospital, an institution for the mentally ill, who apparently didn’t want prices to rise for their personal sundries.

The interesting back-story here is that Coalinga annexed the land of the hospital to build its population base for the census, which draws more federal funding and makes the city more attractive to businesses through increased population. AB 2466 (Weber) in 2006 gave certain convicted offenders on post-release community supervision in county jails and institutions like state hospitals the right to vote. The bill was in response to a California Supreme Court case.

Advocate group alleging asylum-seeker abuses sues government for documents

When Border Patrol agents stop people who are trying to enter the United States without legal documents, they’re supposed to find out whether the person is afraid of returning home, and refer all such migrants to officers who will consider their eligibility for political asylum. But in a lawsuit filed Monday in San Francisco federal court, an advocacy group says it has seen evidence that the Border Patrol has abused asylum-seekers and misrepresented their statements, but the government is refusing to disclose records of its actions.
