Political observers note that San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom’s campaign for governor experienced a little lift yesterday when he flew south to chat up L.A. City College students with Bill Clinton, followed by a fundraiser starring Clinton.
Back at the ranch, though, members of the city Board of Supervisors took advantage of an opportunity to blast Newsom at a Monday hearing on proposed changes to the city’s sanctuary immigration policy dealing with juveniles.
Supervisor Chris Daly said Newsom “should be taken to task” for releasing City Attorney Dennis Herrera’s legal memo on the policy change, the San Francisco Examiner reported. Supervisor John Avalos said “it constitutes official misconduct to release such a memo because it jeopardizes the standing of the city in its legal arguments.”
