Lie, Ed, Lie Twitter Account Up and Running

Even before Mayor Ed Lee could officially sign the paperwork declaring his candidacy for mayor, some pissed-off people cleverly created the "Lie, Ed, Lie" Twitter account, riffing off his about-face decision to run for mayor.

The account was created about five hours ago, stating "I was appointed Mayor based on a lie. Now I plan to run for Mayor because Rose Pak would bitch slap me if I didn't."

The first post came shortly after, casually stating: "I can hardly sleep tonight because this morning Rose Pak & I will announce our campaign for Mayor."

The next post came nearly an hour ago, saying, "Even though I filed

paperwork this morning to be a candidate for Mayor, can I still tell

people I'm not running?"

Could former Supervisor Chris Daly be behind this fake Twitter account? Daly promised to be at City Hall today with a group of other anti-Lee folks to tell him what a liar he is.

Some other great Tweets:

- Dear Ethics Commission: Pls be nice to my "Run Ed Run" friends at today's hearing. I didn't know what they were doing. Really.

- Thinking about shaving my moustache for tonight's Mayoral debate at The Castro Theatre to make even more headline news.

- Rose Pak and Willie Brown told me to watch this video today to prepare for all my media interviews: .

  • 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.'"
