U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders Calls CA Prison Guard PAC Liars For Insinuating His Support of Reggie Jones-Sawyer’s Opponent

After the California Correctional Peace Officers Association PAC sent out a mailer earlier this week that misleadingly insinuated that U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders supports Assemblyman Reggie Jones-Sawyer’s opponent in the race for AD-59, Efren Martinez, today Senator Sanders sent out a tweet denouncing the deceptive mailer and calling on Martinez to condemn the deceitful efforts being made on his behalf.

Previously in February, Assemblyman Jones-Sawyer earned the highly influential endorsement of Senator Bernie Sanders in his re-election campaign for the 59th Assembly District. Last month, Assemblyman Jones-Sawyer’s campaign unveiled a powerful video ad highlighting the Senator’s endorsement.

Prior to being elected to the California State Assembly in 2012, Jones-Sawyer served he served as Chair of the California Legislative Black and CDP Chicano Latino Caucuses, as Secretary of the California Democratic Party, Assistant Deputy Mayor for the City of Los Angeles, as Chair of the Baldwin Hills Conservancy, Chair of the Los Angeles County Small Business Commission and as Los Angeles Professional Managers Association’s Vice President for SEIU’s Local 721.
