For the Ontario, Canada politician, see Robert Mulholland.

Bob Mulholland is the California Democratic Party's "senior advisor and long time chief spokesperson",[1] Known (as reported in November 1991 San Francisco Bay Guardian) for intercepting registration cards of voters who had reregistered Green Party, and sending them back with a letter on state Democratic Party letterhead asking the voter to reconsider the change of party.

Mulholland gained national attention for involvement in the Bruce Hershenson vs. Barbara Boxer campaign. Mulholland leaked a rumor that Hershenson was into porn and frequented a porn shop. Mulholland was fired by the Democratic party, but then rehired weeks after Boxer won. He is also known for his work to block a 2007 censure resolution against California Senator Dianne Feinstein for her vote to support the nomination of Judge Michael Mukasey as United States Attorney General without a vote. He is quoted as saying "It is going to be thrown out and rejected. Sometimes people can't anticipate or can't understand the big picture."[2]
