BART board of directors are coming up for election, and I was curious if any of the candidates were either very, very good or very, very bad Tea Party moles. BART police is an issue in Oakland, but I haven't found much information for other areas. Any and all information would be appreciated!

Sounds good to me. A capsule summary is at:
