by Gavin Newsom Must Be Stopped
Gavin Newsom (a spoiled rich kid with many similarities to George W) looks like he may be the next mayor of SF. His only issue is his demonization of the homeless.

SAN FRANCISCO -- A San Francisco supervisor is asking the city attorney to draft an ordinance that would curb panhandling with a combination of incentives and penalties.
