State Prisons and the Race for California Governor

Hosted by

Two of Arnold Schwarzenegger's directors of prisons resigned this year charging that the prison guards' union had too much influence in the Governor's office. John Hagar, a court-appointed federal watchdog accursed Schwarzenegger of reneging on promised prison reforms, also because of the union. But now the 31,000-member California Correctional Peace Officers Association--one of Sacramento's most powerful players--has endorsed rival gubernatorial candidate, Democrat Phil Angelides.  Will prison reform become an issue in this year's campaign?
