The election was disappointing for several reasons...

2. Mary Hayashi, the convicted shoplifter, running for State Senate in District 10, received a respectable tally of 14,000 votes. She's not advancing to the general election either, but again, you have to wonder about those 14,000 people that voted for her.
3. Closer to home, and here on Thursday, the first day of the week that the Muni employees in San Fransisco aren't all calling in sick, Steve Glazer lost out to Tim Sbranti and Catharine Baker. Steve was our best shot at elevating public transit employees up to the same "essential service" status as police and firefighters by preventing strikes and forcing arbitration. Sbranti will never follow that path; perhaps Baker, a Republican, will.

Try telling Mary Hayashi it is over.
I guarantee she will be back in a vindictive manner.

High School Civics Lesson (because folks like ol' Joe seem to have been absent for those years):
Re. (1): Perhaps the Dems (but just as likely might have been Reps)
voted for Yee because they like the job he has done and believe a man is innocent until proven guilty. (I realize this concept is foreign to Joe and other lynch mob types.)
Re. (2): Perhaps the 14,000 who voted for her liked how she represented them on the issues. (This seems to have escaped ol' blind Joe.)
Re. (3): Glazer lost because most Americans support the right of workers to unionize and so were disinclined to vote for a wacko whose sole purpose in life seems to be waging vendettas against unions. Oh, there are some Neanderthals who share Glazer's characteristics, but they readily identify themselves -- e.g., by starting the likes of this thread.
