Conflicts of Interest among No on Prop 5 spokespeople
Daniel Abrahamson, co-author of Proposition 5 and Director of Legal Affairs at the Drug Policy Alliance Network, publicly called out California Attorney General and former governor Jerry Brown on his motives behind opposing Proposition 5, the Nonviolent Offender Rehabilitation Act. No on Prop 5 is heavily financed by California's prison guard union, who is in turn supporting Brown's bid for Governor in 2010. Interestingly, US Senator Dianne Feinstein, another prominent opponent of Prop 5 (and another hawkish Democrat) is also considering a bid for Governor in 2010. It all gets a little sticky. LAist has more on Prop 5.
