Ed Jew Submits Records On Where He Lives

Posted By on Thu, Jun 7, 2007 at 4:10 PM

That's according to a statement issued by the City Attorney Dennis Herrera's office, which you can read in its entirety after the jump. Herrera had demanded that Jew submit tax returns, vehicle registration and utility records by tomorrow to show that the S.F. supervisor actually lives in S.F. Jew has said he has no intention of resigning.

My take: As a legal issue, proving--or disproving--residency is difficult. (Trust me--lots of legal loopholes there.) The politics of it--that's another story. If the allegations are true (or even just appear true), shame will drive Jew out off office before the law does.

This statement was issued by the city attorney's flack Matt Dorsey this afternoon:

"Supervisor Ed Jew this afternoon provided documents and information in response to

the City Attorney’s request pertaining to questions that involve the supervisor’s

residency. This office is now in the process of reviewing them. As we have previously

stated, these records will not necessarily conclude our office’s investigation. The

residency of elected officials can be a complex question of law and fact, requiring careful

analysis. Further information may be needed to resolve this question.

City Attorney Dennis Herrera is committed to conducting an objective, fair and

thorough investigation of this issue. Accordingly, he intends to continue to work with

Supervisor Jew and his attorney to make sure we have all the necessary information. As

indicated in the accompanying letter, the City Attorney recognizes the importance of

completing this investigation as soon as possible to address public concerns.

Because this process remains ongoing, we will refrain from any further comments

until after the City Attorney has concluded his investigation. Similarly, because this is an

open investigation, we will not provide copies of documents the supervisor has


More Ed Jew. More Will Harper. More Snitchin'.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
