Brown nailed by Fonda flashback - Kasie Hunt
Remember when Jerry Brown tried to give Jane Fonda a job with the state of California?
Fonda wasn’t the only controversial appointment Brown made in the late 1970s. The flap over Fonda was sparked in part because Brown also named Edison Miller, a former Vietnam POW who was investigated for collaborating with the North Vietnamese, to the Orange County Board of Supervisors. Fonda met Miller when she was doing radio broadcasts from Hanoi during the war and recommended him for the job, according to the TIME story.
