The race between San Bernardino City Attorney Jim Penman and challenger David McKenna is shaping up to be the same old song.

The same people, mostly from outside the city, putting up puppet candidates to try and unseat Penman.

In other words, a huge waste of money.

Let’s see how this goes.

McKenna moves into the city to run and already has to issue an apology to Penman for spreading false information about him.

Don’t get me wrong. McKenna is a very nice and pleasant person. How he was talked into running only he knows.

It just kind of reminds everyone of the Tim Prince, Marianne Milligan, and Measure C campaigns.

All three failed to unseat Penman.
