Bill Fazio, Jew's attorney, is now saying that Ed will not accept the plea bargain, because the deal would have Jew stepping down as supervisor. Fazio goes on to tell the Chronicle, "[t]hat is the most crucial concern he has." Really? Because his sanity seems to be the bigger issue at this point.
If Ed respects any of the people who voted him into office, why won't he step down? Like, now? And get this over with.
