RIP Eric Bradley (1963-2016)

Politics is full of bright, devoted people who are warriors for their cause (the state of Texas excepted). Among all the warriors and egos, from time to time there are knights who shine for their devotion and the example they set. Eric Bradley was a Knight who was universally loved and respected within the community. On Sunday we lost Eric unexpectedly and today the California Assembly paid tribute to this fine man.
