Description

Reporters Will Harper and Robert Gammon tell the story of the FBI's investigation into "links between senator Don Prata and a $40 million roadway project designed to enrich Alameda developer Ron Cowan." According to the Express, Cowan is a "close friend and a big campaign donor" to Perata, who pressured area public agencies to spend large amounts on a Beltway lobbyist to make sure the project would go forward.
