Did you know that Scott Kamena got into his current office illegally?

He lived in PLEASANTON when he was first appointed and elected to LIVERMORE's park district. The Contra Costa Times did an expose on November 14, 2003 which revealed that Kamena got into office through a series of questionable legal loopholes. He based his appointment to LARPD in 2001 and election in 2002 on a secret real estate document that he refuses to release to the public. (What is Kamena hiding?)

LARPD's lawyer has argued with rambling, tortured explanations that Kamena was in office legally -- but the Times expose revealed that LARPD's lawyer was himself a business partner with Kamena's father in the very same office building that Kamena used to qualify himself for office. (Whose interest was the LARPD lawyer really protecting?)

The Times expose also revealed that a Kamena crony on the LARPD Board was himself in office illegally when he cast the deciding "swing" vote in favor of Kamena's appointment.

Should someone who "stole" his first political office with the help of family cronies now be entrusted to write laws affecting 38 million Californians?
