More than $1,000,000 raised for less than 57K votes works out to nearly $20 per Burton vote. Apparently daddy's money was not enough to buy the election - but she certainly got the endorsements (Were people afraid to get on the wrong side of her father?). She even lists her husband, Emilio Cruz, as endorsing her.

The effort on Burton's behalf, reflected in records filed last week with the city's Ethics Commission, has driven political funding to unheard-of levels -- past the $1 million mark -- in an election for the job of providing legal services to poor people accused of crimes. Relying in part on donations from Sacramento lobbyists, political committees and interest groups that often have business before the state Senate, where her father is president pro tem, Burton already had raised more than $566,000 for her race with lawyer Jeff Adachi. With the $513,216 infusion of soft money -- donations exempt under a legal loophole from the city's $500 limit on individual donations -- more than $1.07 million has been raised to boost her candidacy, the records show. ... Almost 75 percent of her donations come from outside San Francisco -- from Sacramento, Oakland, Los Angeles, Beverly Hills and more than 250 other locales. In fact, the postal zip code where Burton raised the most money is not in San Francisco, but in Sacramento. She obtained more than $27,000 from zip code 95814, the district surrounding the state Capitol, where many of the state's heavy-hitting lobbyists have their offices. S.F. PUBLIC DEFENDER: State Senate leader's clout seen in huge donations to daughter's campaign, SF Chronicle

Both the SF Guardian and Chronicle endorsed Jeff Adachi.

Adachi beats Burton 'machine' Veteran of public defender's office beats appointee who axed him - Rachel Gordon, SF Chronicle, March 7, 2002

SAN FRANCISCO'S NEW public defender made it clear her first day on the job that she's more concerned with politics than with fulfilling her office's mission. Mayor Willie Brown appointed Kimiko Burton, daughter of state senator John Burton, to replace the departing Jeff Brown Jan. 26. Burton's first move was to fire Jeff Adachi, the talented chief assistant public defender who plans to run against her next year. Bad news from Burton , SF Bay Guardian, editorial January 31, 2001

From campain Bio ...

Burton received her law degree from Hastings College of Law and her Bachelors degree from the University of California, Davis. A San Francisco native, Burton is married to Emilio Cruz, Chief Operating Officer for the Hispanic Scholarship Fund. They live in San Francisco with their young son, Juan Emilio. All three are ardent 49ers fans - at age two months, Juan Emilio slept through his first 49er game. [Source: http://www.somaglow.com/burton/biography.html, 13-Mar-2002]
