Mayor Gavin Newsom suspended Ed Jew today, (temporarily) removing him from office a little before 9 a.m. this morning at Waverly Place in Chinatown, according to the Chronicle. The young-ish Carmen Chu, 29, Newsom's deputy budget director, will fill Ed's seat for now.
"She’s been a senior member of the mayor’s budget office staff and been involved in the preparation of the city budget. She’s a homeowner in the Sunset, so it’s conceivable that she could be seated as of today’s meeting," said
Gavin's lapdog, Supervisor Bevan Dufty, according to CBS5.
UPDATE: Well, that was quick.
