Lewis Cohen, the fomer aide to Oakland Council President Ignacio De La Fuente, cleared the air regarding his rant last October in The Daily Kos. In an email response to my question regarding the Daily Kos post, he wrote:
"It's from me. It speaks for itself. nowhere does refer to any personal problem between me and Ignacio. It is about a disagreement over our views on development, police accountability and schools. There is nothing that refers to Elihu in any way shape or form. Administration refers to the school district."
Shortly after I posted a column reporting Former Oakland Council President Ignacio De La Fuente's Aide Lewis Cohen's Daily Kos rant, he emailed to say that what I wrote was not accurate, but would not say why. I responded that all people care about is the Daily Kos post.
Cohen's had ample time to refute the Daily Kos, as he's been contacted about the posting before; he didn't return the phone calls placed by the East Bay Express.
