San Francisco Board of Supervisors President Aaron Peskin has been on a bit of a roll lately. In addition to threatening to have Newsom's director of climate protection initiatives, Wade Crowfoot, canned out of mere spite, Peskin has also reportedly bullied Port of San Francisco employees for disagreeing "with him over building-height limits on the city's waterfront."
Last August, the Port Executive Director, Monique Moyer, sent a letter to both the city human resources department and Mayor Newsom. In it she claims Peskin intimidated her with job loss and funding cuts. According the Gate:
Moyer said Peskin's actions - which included a late-evening phone call to her house in which the supervisor said he would be "going after" her - violate a city law that prohibits members of the board from interfering in the business of city departments and qualify as official misconduct.
Peskin has denied this, claiming that he does "not threaten peoples' jobs." Okay?
By the way, this was the same month, if you recall, Supervisor Michela Alioto-Pier accused Aaron of childishly switching his vote in order to kill "a piece of legislation she sponsored because she went public with her opposition to a Muni overhaul measure spearheaded by Peskin." Hence: "Payback is a bitch," etcetera, etcetera, and so forth. Jesus.
