City College of San Francisco's Gough Street offices were raided today by DA investigators as part of an ongoing investigation of alleged money laundering during a 2005 bond campaign.

Tens of thousands of dollars due to CCSF in rent was instead diverted to a campaign measure promoting a ballot proposition -- which subsequently passed, granting the school $246 million in rebuilding funds.

Disturbingly, staff within the city's Ethics Commission have alleged that knowledge of the money laundering was known to them more than a year before the story broke -- but was suppressed.

More as we know more, folks.

  • 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.'"
