So it looks like the Electronic Electioneering resolution has passed, with the unamended version winning in a nine-to-two vote, with Supervisors Elsbernd and Alioto-Pier voting no, meaning that the board has enough votes to override a veto by the Gavster.

The amended version, which would exclude weblogs (like SFist) still hasn't been presented to the Ethics Commission, which should happen next Monday. If the amended version passes, it would replace the unamended version. The legislation would affect the 'issue advocacy' mailings and websites, which previously could avoid disclosure as long as they didn't specifically mention "Vote Yes" or "Vote No" for a particular candidate. Sophie Maxwell urged passage, even though "we were threatened in the newspaper today that people will sue us if we pass this." There were no public comments regarding the resolution.
