Enrique Pearce, a well-known local campaign consultant, was arrested Thursday on child pornography charges, the San Francisco Examiner reports

Pearce is a lawyer and political consultant who runs Left Coast Communications. According to the Examiner, he has worked on campaigns for Supervisor Jane Kim, led the "Run Ed Run" campaign to persuade Ed Lee to run for election in 2011, and is registered as a campaign consultant for Lee's current re-election campaign. Per the Examiner: 
"'Mayor Lee is profoundly shocked. These are deeply disturbing and serious charges, and he trusts law enforcement to fully investigate and prosecute, if true. The Mayor has also directed his campaign to terminate all ties with Mr. Pearce and his firm, effective immediately," said Tony Winnicker, Senior Advisor to the mayor."

  • 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.'"
