Jerry Brown’s spokesman resigns after secretly taping reporters’ calls
In a letter delivered by hand to Brown's top deputy, Scott Gerber said he did not record conversations with reporters to "play gotcha" but to have an accurate record of what was said during on-the-record interviews.
"It is clear now that I made serious errors in judgment," Gerber said.
A state law requires consent to record telephone conversations when there is an expectation of confidentiality.
