So ... hmm. Could it be, political games still plague MUNI? No, surely not! That the MTA's board is appointed, rather than just voted on, was supposed to finally put an end to political cronyism for the rest of eternity. But Bay Area Transit News referred to Hunter as a "political time-server," and Gavin's nomination of a guy with no transit experience does seem sort of inappropriate to us. But then again, how much damage could an unqualified leader really do? It's not like MUNI can get much worse.
