Roy: As an initial matter, if you’re going to run a one-sided hit piece suggesting that I’m taking “dirty money,” you should give me a real opportunity to respond before you run the piece.
UH, WHO MADE UP THIS RULE? UH, IF YOU CAN’T STAND THE HEAT, SCOTT WIENER, GET OUT OF THE KITCHEN, SCOTT WIENER
As for Tim Redmond’s hit piece on me, I’ll say the following. First, I question why Tim didn’t run the numbers for other Supervisors running for reelection or for the Assembly.
SO THE RULE IS “ANY CRITICISM OF SCOTT WIENER COMMITTED TO WRITING IS A ‘HIT PIECE?’” I THINK NOT. AND IF ATTORNEY SCOTT WIENER EVER GETS ARRESTED FOR LOOTING, HE’LL BE SURE ASK HIS ARRESTING OFFICERS ABOUT ALL THE OTHER LOOTERS WHO _WEREN’T_ ARRESTED, RIGHT?
Second, my record on rent control is long and pro-renter.
AHAHAHAHAH! SCOTT WIENER IS THE SAN FRANCISCO REAL ESTATE INDUSTRY’S BEST FRIEND. THAT MEANS THAT HE’S DEFINITELY NOT “PRO-RENTER.” IF HE WANTS TO SAY THAT HE DOESN’T WANT TO BAN RENT CONTROL THIS YEAR I’LL BELIEVE HIM. BUT SCOTT WIENER HAS NEVER BEEN AND NEVER WILL BE THE “PRO-RENTER” CANDIDATE IN ANY CONTESTED ELECTION. SO YOUR LAUNDRY LIST IS WORTHLESS, SCOTT WIENER.
As for my campaign donations throughDecember 31, as disclosed on the recent campaign report, 85% of my donations…”
BLAH BLAH BLAH, ALL THAT DOESN’T MATTER. YOU, SCOTT WIENER, ARE THE SAN FRANCISCO REAL ESTATE INDUSTRY’S BEST FRIEND. WOULD ANYONE DENY THIS?
Unfortunately, there’s a troubling trend in some self-described progressive political circles to define who are “real San Franciscans” and who are not.
SCOTT WIENER, THOUGH HE’D LIKE TO DENY THIS, IS A RIGHT-OF-CENTER SAN FRANCISCO POLITICIAN. HE IS CRITICIZING “FOLKS” ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE AISLE FOR NOT LIVING UP TO HIS EXPECTATIONS. SO HE’S “TROUBLED” BY THIS. OK FINE. BUT YOU, SCOTT WIENER, ARE THE BEST FRIEND OF THE SAN FRANCISCO REAL ESTATE INDUSTRY, RIGHT? ISN’T THAT “TROUBLING” AS WELL?
As with every elected official, I raise money from a wide array of sources. And, yes, that includes architects, real estate agents, folks in construction, trade unions, and folks who build housing. A number of the realtors who contributed are folks I’ve known for a long time…
WELL, FIRST OF ALL, YOU GOTTA CAPITALIZE THE “R” IN REALTORS, LIKE DUH, DUDE. SECOND OF ALL, FOLKS, FOLKS, FOLKS, FOLKS, FOLKS, FOLKS, FOLKS, FOLKS, FOLKS, FOLKS, THAT’S SCOTT WIENER’S FAVORITEST CRUTCH WORD.
As noted, donors to my campaign, overwhelmingly, are San Francisco residents, and almost half of them live in the district. They include folks who work in real estate and folks who don’t.
OBVIOUSLY, SUPERVISOR SCOTT WIENER IS VERY VERY AFRAID OF BEING VIEWED AS BEING TOO CLOSE TO THE REAL ESTATE INDUSTRY. OBVIOUSLY, SUPERVISOR SCOTT WIENER THINKS THAT HE CAN CHANGE PEOPLE’S MINDS ON THIS SITUATION BY USING THE TERM “FOLKS” SEVEN TIMES IN THREE PARAGRAPHS. IS THIS HIS BEST EFFORT?
SCOTT WIENER, IF YOU DON’T LIKE YOUR JOB, IF YOU HAVE SO SO MANY COMPLAINTS, WHY DON’T YOU QUIT?
