Has there been a official death notification of the Political Blotter, or are we just suppose to assume that services have already taken place? I keep checking but nothing has appeared. Seems there could be a small effort to put a "period" at the end.

The numbering of the presidents was controversial. In 1945, when FDR died, the New York Times described Harry Truman as becoming the 32nd President, when today, most people regard him as the 33rd.

Ro Khanna says that he does not take PAC money but that is not true. He has taken donations from over 130 Republican donors including a Texas based Super PAC. District 17 Democrats do not want a representative in Congress who is beholden to billionaires who don't live in the district. His biggest donors are the Enron hedge-fund billionaire from Texas, John Arnold and his wife, Laura. They have contributed over $370,000 to his two campaigns and his Super PAC. They are leading figures in the pro-charter school movement and have spent hundreds of thousands attacking public employee pensions in California.

I doubt the San Francisco Chronicle and East Bay Times would ever endorse a conservative Tea Party-type Republican. Very well could be that Assemlywoman Baker is a moderate and you're just a radical lefty.
