After the Airbnb Fiasco, Mayor Ed Lee Says Diane Feinstein is Giving “Enthusiastic Support” to the Assembly Campaign of David ChiuMonday, November 3rd, 2014
Believe it or not, Mayor Ed Lee is saying that DiFi is giving “enthusiastic support” to the Assembly campaign of David Chiu. Check it:
“I am proud to join U.S. Senator Diane Feinstein … in giving David Chiu my enthusiastic support.”
Now IRL, here’s DiFi herself on President Chiu’s Airbnb legislation from October 20th, 2014:
I’m thinking no, DiFi’s residual support of David Chiu, if any, against David Campos sure aint “enthusiastic.”
Read the news and turn the pages. Moving on…
Hey, speaking of Airbnb, check this out, from San Francisco’s biggest corrupt non-profit org:
“On October 6, Supervisor Jane Kim’s persistence and the last-minute intervention of Mayor Ed Lee ensured that legislation legalizing tourist rentals in San Francisco will have teeth.”
The problem with this, or I should say just one problem with this, is that Ed Lee could have simply not signed the legislation, right? There was no need for any “intervention,” right?
I don’t know how seriously people take all these shenanigans. We’ll see, soon enough…
Uh oh, there’s a problem with candidate Michela Alioto-Pier saying she’d be “the first woman elected mayor of San Francisco.”
As David Cruise and others of the Twitterverse have pointed out:
“Nothing worse than hearing lies coming out of a candidates mouth… Michela needs to stop saying #SF has never elected a woman #SFMayor.”
And as a matter of fact, San Francisco had a stretch of 16 years, from 1971 to 1987, when Dianne Feinstein ran for Mayor four times in a row and ended up winning twice.

So, yes, DiFi was appointed, but she was also elected.
Leave us never discuss this again.
California Senator Dianne Feinstein says it’s time for California lawmakers to put a water bond on the November ballot, but outfits like Clean Water Action and the Calfornia Coastkeeper Alliance rallied yesterday in opposition:
“Conservation and fishing groups representing over 180,000 Californians, including the California Coastkeeper Alliance, submitted a petitionto Governor Schwarzenegger and Senator Feinstein today and rallied at events throughout the state, calling for an end to the proposed $9.3 billion water bond, which is based heavily on ineffective and environmentally destructive dams.”
San Francisco Supervisor Tom Ammiano says he doesn’t want to start his term in the Assembly, “telling mothers that their local school district is closing so we can build a dam.” Fair enough.
CoastKeeper Alliance Executive Director Linda Sheehan and daughter Madeleine on the steps of City Hall yesterday:
There’s still time this week to work out a compromise, it looks like.
Here’s what the San Francisco Chamber of Commerce had to say when they found out the annual luncheon with the Niners ain’t gonna happen this year:
“Our main reaction is disappointment,” said Carol Piasente, the chamber’s vice president of communications and events.
Irregardless, KNBR 49er Family Day is ON this Saturday, June 7th.
The day will feature contests, games and appearances by members of the 49ers football team, alumni, Gold Rush, Niners Noise Drumline and Sourdough Sam. Fans are encouraged to arrive early to take in all of the day’s festivities.
See you there.
