Rumors are percolating that Gavin Newsom might, as a SFist commenter Manys pointed out, pull a Sarah Palin. That is to say, he could very well resign. Or not. No one can say for sure, of course. Sure, former Director of Communications Nate Ballard once (allegedly) convinced Newsom not to quit his mayoral gig a few years back; but now that he's gone, is there anyone left to talk Gavin out of resigning? Probably not.

Greg Dewar of N Judah Chronicles recently created a site, Go Gavin Newsom, urging Newsom to quit.

And there's this site too. Ouch.

Now that the mayor lost the next rung on the fame/power ladder, what's the next plan of attack for our elected mayor of San Francisco?
