Today on the conservative Republican, Republican National Committeeman and former state GOP chairman Shawn Steel says enough is enough: Leave Don Perata alone.

“I don’t like Don Perata. I don’t like his politics. As senate leader he’s bullied many bad laws for California. But not even Don Perata deserves the abuse he received from Feds for the last 5 years.”


“It’s time to drop the vendetta against Perata. The Feds had 5 years and millions of dollars to make their case. US Attorney Brown instead ought to seek private employment and get out of the prosecution business.”

    You know, with constant news coming out concerning abuse by elective officials at every level, I just can’t help but think this is an effort to keep the investigation from uncovering too much that would even implicate Republicans and reveal even more corruption at very basic levels of government. There is really no other news from Sacramento that would lead one to think otherwise.

    Wrong, Shawn!

    If anyone deserves it, it’s Don Perata. Richly. Couldn’t happen to a nicer guy.
