#TonyPodesta didn’t just steal in D.C., he ripped off #Oakland schools too

Democratic power lobbyist Tony Podesta, who is stepping down from the firm that bears his name after coming under investigation by special counsel Robert Mueller, has a political reach that extends to the Bay Area.

Oakland Unified School District records show that the financially strapped system paid $419,000 to the Podesta Group from 2010 to 2013 for lobbying work in Washington, D.C.

According to school records, the Podesta firm initially was paid $75,000 for a seven-month contract to help the Oakland district secure federal funds for youths who had been incarcerated in juvenile hall.
