That's right: if Mohammed won't come to the mountain, the mountain will come to Mohammad -- Supervisor Chris Daly's gone and started the process of putting a new proposition on the ballot for the next election, requiring Gavin Newsom appear for Question Time as a matter of law. Dang! Why not just go ahead and add something requiring Gavin to appear in a chicken suit too, while we're at it?
It's not quite on the ballot yet, though: Daly needs six supervisors to sign off on the measure, and then the voters would have to approve it by a majority at the November election, before the marshals drag Gavin in, kicking and screaming like a toddler. If Gavin even wins reelection, that is. (Ha! He's totally going to win reelection -- even though the Usual Suspects futures market is now showing Tony Hall
in the lead gaining (thanks for the clarification, David! We're still new to this futures game.)
