|For Brown, it appeared his words last October
in his annual State of the City speech had
come back to haunt him. "I just hope
that the irresponsible advocates of electing
people just because they oppose Willie Brown
don't load us down with a lot of crazy people,
" he had said. [S.F. Election Loosens Mayor's Grasp on Board, SF Chronicle, December 13, 2000]
Talk about crazy people ?? Amos Brown should be right up there on the list for his support of every fascist idea he can come up with. With Amos Brown, forget civil liberties and compassion for the poor. He would have the cops take cars away from anyone they feel like accusing of using/selling drugs or sex. Is Amos Brown what Willie stands for? In district #11 Gerardo Sandoval got most of the endorsements with the notable exception of Nancy Pelosi - what happened to Nancy Pelosi - is she part of the Brown machine?
In the district elections supervisors Michael Yaki and Amos Brown were both defeated. In the 5th district, Matt Gonzalez beat Juanita Owens (a Brown supported candidate) 9,775 to 5,021.
