    Who played very dirty tricks, one of them is 'Push-Polls"

    And a relentless Chronicle editorial campaign.

      who was somehow trying to play the whole thing down.

    •  The Chronicle (0+ / 0-)

      never has a good track record on supervisor endorsements. It occasionally makes very odd choices, and its candidates usually end up losing.

    •  I'm anti-sheriff too (4+ / 0-)

      As are around 75% of San Franciscans who do not want a convicted domestic abuser in charge of our sheriff's office. Olague also accepted contributions from "anti-sheriff group" funders like Ron Conway as well - the difference is she lost.

      •  As opposed to a corrupt... (0+ / 0-)

        ... mayor who accepted illegal campaign contributions and has his own ethics issues?

        The charges of domestic abuse was a red herring from the beginning; especially when the current DA in his capacity as head of the SFPD refused to punish his troops of actual go to the hospital domestic abuse; or the sfpd breaking a woman's leg in North Beach, all caught on camera; no charges leveled against the cops.

        They hate Ross because he is a true Progressive; and the domestic abuse lobby are useful dupes for a corrupt city police force that has always been at odds with the Sheriff's Office.

        That's a primer in SF Politics that is not so readily addressed.
