She believes in a "strong and honest government" - I almost chocked on my breakfast because I laughed so hard. What a fraud! People like her are so full of themselves that they think everyone else is just plain stupid. I hope she gets the punishment that she deserves and that people see her as the shameless liar that she is.

We have former State Assemblywoman Mary Hayashi, convicted of shoplifting $2500 worth of merchandise, having . . . to now run for State Senate. We have the fiasco with Nadia Lockyer, a Alameda County Supervisor and drug addict(Comment partially removed by Pleasanton Weekly Online staff)

(Comment partially removed by Pleasanton Weekly Online staff) Since Knox voted in the wrong county, I wonder how many counties she voted on in there entirely? Dollars to donuts ACORN was behind this.
