Gavin Newsom in Disbelief

All hell has broken loose at City Hall because Chris Daly has accused the mayor of being a hypocrite in cutting the city’s substance-abuse treatment programs while the mayor “artfully dodges every question about allegations of his own cocaine use.” He went on to say “Where does Gavin Christopher Newsom get his substance abuse services, and how much do they cost the city and county of San Francisco?”

Newsom (pictured here hearing about Chris Daly’s allegations for the first time) responded by saying “Absolutely not…this is so gratuitous, so erroneous that it’s just patently false.” Newsom then sent a letter to Board of Supervisors President Aaron Peskin requesting that the board address Daly’s conduct. Meanwhile, Chris Daly refuses to apologize saying he stands solidly behind everything he said.

Other members of the Board of Supervisors have distanced themselves from Daly. Peskin said. “The entire episode is conduct unbecoming an elected official.” Many people think that Daly has taken politics to a new low in this city, and it’s only going to get worse during an election year.
