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

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”
