As senior political writer for The Chronicle, Carla has survived Midwestern food, bad bus tours and a variety of forgettable presidential candidates in Iowa, New Hampshire and around the country since 1996. The highlight of her coverage of California's gubernatorial races came when Schwarzenegger capo Todd Harris awarded her a coveted seat on the "Predator 1" press bus during the historic 2003 recall election. The former pizzeria worker from Jersey City and K Mart cashier graduated from San Jose State University and has talked her way into being a Hoover Institution Media Fellow at Stanford University, a Rotary International Fellow at the Universidad Nacional Autonoma de Mexico, and a Casey Journalism Fellow at the University of Maryland. Go figure.She's a regular political commentator on radio and TV, including KTVU Channel 2 and KQED's "This Week in Northern California" and Dublin Newstalk Radio 106 in Ireland, where she goes by the name Sinead O'Palermo. Marinucci is married to a journalist, Roland De Wolk, and has successfully used strongarm tactics to convince their sons Joey, 20, and Tony, 18, not to even think about it.
