Kamala Harris Senate Site Urges Visitors to "Follow @EdLeeForMayor"

Mayor Ed Lee and Attorney General and would-be Senator Kamala Harris and are, perhaps, the mater- and paterfamilias of the so-called "City Family." It's debatable, but at City Family gatherings, these two could well be getting the turkey drumsticks. 

So, it's understandable — but still kinda embarrassing — that, earlier today, Harris' official Senate website urged visitors to throw down for Ed Lee's mayoral campaign. 

Lee will, soon enough, have to run for re-election. But, unlike Harris, he's likely running unopposed and can't boast that the President of the United States referred to him as the foxiest of all the 50 Attorneys General

How did this happen? Well, Lee and Harris do entrust their political campaigns to the same people. We've put in a call there and also to Harris' campaign writ large. Nothing yet. 

So we'll see if there's an interesting explanation to be had. And that would be notable: The juxtaposition of the words "Mayor Ed Lee" and "interesting."

  • 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.'"
