Slick state ride

Re "Perata is victim of carjacking," Dec. 30

According to Oakland police, the team of carjackers who took state Senate President Pro Tem Don Perata's 2006 Dodge Charger was attracted by the 22-inch chrome rims and probably did not see the state of California exempt license plate.

Why does a California politician need such a flashy vehicle? Do I smell the sickly sweet aroma of hypocrisy exposed by the gunpoint theft of his tax-financed ride?
