A friendly reminder as Californians go to the polls today: Included on GOP gubernatorial candidate Meg Whitman’s “public safety” advisory committee is Kern County, California DA Ed Jagels, the man who put 25 (at least) innocent people in prison. This presumably is the sort of person Whitman would have advising her on criminal justice issues should she become governor.
Oh, and while she was head of eBay, the company formally advocated throwing people who play online poker in jail.
I don’t know that her opponent today is any better. But those are two pretty good reasons not to vote for Whitman.
