The new blow-up in the Governor’s race involving Democrat Jerry Brown has some interesting twists.

In addition to the Meg Whitman is a “whore” issue, there is also the following little tidbits coming out of Brown’s mouth in the recording.

In referring to public safety officers, Brown says “Not that they can read.”

Then Brown slams Alan Barcelona, president of the California State Law Enforcement Association (CSLEA).

Brown says of Barcelona “He’s not one of our stellar officers.”

Looks like those public safety pensions are going to take a hit under Brown.

It will be interesting to know how the California Correctional Peace Officer’s Association (CCPOA), the state’s prison guards union and the Peace Officer’s Research Association of California (PORAC) feel this morning.

Even the San Bernardino County Safety Employees Benefit Association (SEBA) gave Brown $50,000.

The word “Duped” comes to mind.

I can hear the pot boiling now.
