In an effort to the eradicate the stench of plebeian home ownership, Newsom's had some sort of inane condo lottery bypass fee in his budget, one that would've charged potential homeowners $4,000 to $20,000. SocketSite reports that it's officially dead now, claiming, "By way of a plugged-in tipster and Supervisor Carmen Chu, San Francisco's Budget and Finance Committee 'voted 3-1 on Monday to table/not to advance the [one-time condo conversion lottery bypass for a fee] proposal forward.'" Delightful news. Update: Or not! [Examiner, SocketSite, via Curbed]
