Ah, only in the City by the Bay would a Federal law-breaking gay guy be named to the Board of Supervisors by theÂ California law-breaking Mayor.
San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom swore in openly gay attorney David Campos to replace Tom Ammiano on the San Francisco Board of Supervisors. Ammiano won his election to the California State Assembly on Nov. 4, carrying a Victory Fund endorsement.
Campos, who will represent the city’s ninth district, came to the United States at the age of 14 as an undocumented immigrant from Guatemala. He became an American citizen in 1997, according to the San Francisco Chronicle.
â€œI might be the first undocumented person elected to the Board of Supervisors,â€ Campos said to cheers. â€œI think it’s only fitting in this very difficult time to be an immigrant that something like this would happen in San Francisco. It says a lot about the city.â€
Arghhhhhhhhh.Â Â Is there some way to saw off San Fran and allow it to be its own country?Â Which is worse?Â The fact he was an illegal immigrant…. or that he’s a lawyer?
By the way, The Victory Fund folks want me to be happy cuz he’s openly gay.Â I guess gay trumps “rule of law” now.Â Â
And just exactly what is so interesting about a gay guy on the San Fran Board of Supervisors?Â I’d just assume they were all gays or lesbians by now.Â Â Is there gay discrimination in elections in San Fran?Â
