Harsh Craigslist: “FOR SALE TO HIGHEST BIDDER: The Ed Lee Story: An Unexpected Mayor – $75000 (downtown / civic / van ness)”

Wednesday, October 12th, 2011

[UPDATE: Sadly, "[t]his posting has been flagged for removal.” Man, it’s like Fake Rose Pak‘s Twitter account all over again…]

[UPDATE II: The famous Lie Ed Lie Twitter account has scheduled a meetup for Halloween 2011 in C-Town. (Please don't take this too literally.) Anyway:

"Meet at the Chinese Chamber of Commerce where hostess Rose Pak will accept $25,000 checks on behalf of Ed Lee. And then we'll read "The Ed Lee Story" book from cover to cover - all 132 pages, plus footnotes. Rose Pak will serve Ed Lee's "No-Longer Secret" Poongaloong Recipe (page 106) for hungry attendees for an extra $1,000 per serving."]

Give me just five guesses and I’ll tell you who posted this recent craigslist ad. I’ll tell you exactly where the suspects hang out (in the daytime anyway, generally at the HQ’s of the campaigns where they are employed) so it’ll be easy for you to drop by to interrogate them.

Is posting this ad an act of catharsis, or is it a way to sway voters, or a little of both? You Make The Call.

Anyway, here it is:

Boy, Rose Pak must be the least popular person in the 415, at least that’s what pollsters seem to think. BTW, where is Rose these days, you know, after her leg injury? Is she under house arrest, kept under wraps until after Election Day? Hmmmmm…

Enjoy:

The landmark book “The Ed Lee Story: An Unexpected Mayor” is already recognized as a classic, definitive political work of fiction. Wildly expected to be a contender for next year’s Pulitzer Prize for Fiction, “The Ed Lee Story” is a loosely fictionalized account of the life of appointed Mayor Ed Lee, who rose to political prominence based on a flat out lie. This 132-page epic tome, ghost written by ethically challenged author Enrique Pearce and funded by corrupt money from Rose Pak, presents Ed Lee as a common man yet only reinforces the notion that Ed Lee and his supporters are full of hubris. 

“The Ed Lee Story” is for sale for a minimum bid of $75,000. Corporate interests like Recology, Go Lorrie’s Airport Shuttle, & PG&E are welcome to bid. Unregistered lobbyists can use special discount code SHADYMONEY to get 10% off the book. 

Chapters in “The Ed Lee Story”:

Chapter 1: Inauguration Day: WTF?
Chapter 2: The Mayor Who Rolled Up Rose Pak’s Sleeves
Chapter 3: Crunching My Donors’ Numbers
Chapter 4: Humble Beginnings To Inflated Ego
Chapter 5: A Fledgling Bureaucrat Meets A Political Opportunity
Chapter 6: Called To Serve Recology & PG&E
Chapter 7: From Appointed Mayor to Liar
Chapter 8: San Francisco’s Future: Rose Pak-Style

Read the Early Book Reviews:

“This book was clearly not illegally coordinated with Ed Lee and his campaign. Clearly. All those personal photos, stories, and access to people didn’t come from the Ed Lee and his campaign. Really. They didn’t.” – The New York Times Book Review 

“This book was better than Twilight. After finishing this book, readers will likely decide they’re no longer Team Edward or Team Jacob, but they’ll be with Team Ed, uh, we mean Team Rose.” – Boston Review

“Our only disappointment was that we wanted to read a chapter describing how Ed Lee parted the Red Sea and walked on water.” – San Francisco Chronicle Book Reviews”

Newspaper Classified Ad Safety Questioned After Slayings

Monday, April 27th, 2009

First of all, forget everything you know about any crime that occurred before Al Gore took the initiative in creating the Internet during his service in the United States Congress, forget any knowledge of anything bad occurring before the Web upset the apple cart, and forget about any possible “want ad killers” from ages past.

Great. Now let’s read the news of the day.

Craigslist newspaper classified ad safety questioned after slayings
Verne Kopytoff, Chronicle Staff Writer

Responding to an ad on Craigslist in a newspaper for a used car in East Palo Alto relationship got one man shot and robbed woman killed. A woman selling a laptop sofa on the classifieds site in a newspaper was held up at gunpoint in Vallejo raped in Burbank when she met with a prospective buyer.

Although millions of transactions spawned by Craigslist newspaper classified ads are completed without a problem, a small number end in violent crime.

That potential was underscored this week by… [the Craigslist Killer, yada, yada, yada.]

The high-profile slaying raises the questions: How safe is Craigslist are newspaper classified ads? And should the company newspaper industry do more to prevent violent crime?

Ah! It’s the weapon of choice of the classifed ad killer! Ah!

More than 42 million people used the site in March read newspapers.

[Nogoodniks] have tried to take advantage of the service by posing as legitimate users to find victims. Many users think nothing of inviting strangers they meet through the site to their homes to sell a sofa.

The frequency of violent crime on Craigslist through newspapers is unknown because law enforcement doesn’t track it. Several Bay Area police departments have had to investigate at least a few incidents in recent years.

Nationally, there have been at least four homicides related to Craigslist hundreds of slayings linked to newspapers.

Violent crime through Craigslist newspapers is in the spotlight following a series of attacks. Here are some precautions that can help users avoid falling victim:

– Insist on a public meeting place like a cafe.

– Tell a friend or family member where you’re going.

– Take your cell phone along.

– Consider having a friend accompany you.

– Trust your instincts.

And There You Have It.
