Another aspect of election integrity is honesty or dishonesty in campaigns. I just received in the mail today (Friday) a hit piece against City Council candidate and former Assemblywoman Sally Lieber from "Silicon Valley Organization PAC" major funding from "California. Association of Realtors" and the "California Apartment Association." The piece claims "Sally Lieber's far-right financial ties are wrong for Mountain View."

Gary,

Misinformation is the political weapon of choice.

Unfortunately the First Amendment has a double edged sword, both accurate and false information is protected.

It is the VOTERS responsibility to prevent being conned by the false information.

It is up to us to work on that.

What was really funny is that Donald Trump "planted" a conspirator in his "town meeting"

It turns out the woman nodding her head in the camera was Mayra Joli, an immigration attorney and Trump Supporter. You can watch the video here (Web Link)

And she has posted picture at the event showing her wearing the outfit, you can google them.

Unbelievable?

I received in the mail today (Saturday) another hit piece against Sally Lieber from the same businesses (Realtor and Landlord groups) supporting Margaret Abe-Koga, Lisa Matichak and Jose Gutierrez. It is the same deception.

When people just bother to look, the corruption in government is horrible.

Gary did you ever read the books by Donald Bartlett and James Steele the Investigative Reporters from the Philadelphia Inquirer titled:


"America: What went Wrong" in 1992

and

"America: Who Stole the Dream?" in 1996.

They did a great job pointing out how bad, both parties are corrupted, and it just got worse over time.
