The SF mayor election is Tuesday. Green Matt Gonzalez has a slight lead and big momentum. Gavin Newsom, darling of the business community, has blown a huge lead even with all the money Wall Street is sending him.
Gavin Newsom’s flood of campaign cash isn’t flowing just from San Francisco’s elite: there’s a sleazy Wall Street connection.
Many of Newsom’s top donors are players in the high finance arena: investment bankers, venture capitalists, hedge fund managers, and the like.
Golly, you don’t suppose they want something for their money, do you?
