Video of Yee after Filing for Mayoral Exploratory Committee

November 15, 2010 -

Last week, California State Senator Leland Yee (D-San Francisco/San Mateo) announced the formation of an exploratory committee as part of his bid to run for Mayor of San Francisco in 2011.

A video of Yee filmed just after said filing has the Senator stating that the move will allow him to “begin the conversation with the people of San Francisco as to how to move the city forward.”

Yee, or course, authored the original California law that has made it all the way to the Supreme Court as Schwarzenegger vs. EMA. Surrounded by family, Yee played up his community roots in the video and said that he was “absolutely passionate and eager” to discuss dealing with the important issues facing San Francisco.

As noted previously, current San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom (D) was just elected Lieutenant Governor of California and plans, according to ABC, to vacate his post in January of next year. A new Mayor will be appointed by the city’s Board of Supervisors, who are itching to speed up the process and could appoint a lame-duck, one-year replacement as early as this week.

Newsom called the Board’s eagerness “meaningless" and an an attempt at "politicizing" the process.

I guess he plans to further the current SF path of sucking the fun out of childhood for all residents of SF.

Our nation has the most amazingly schizophrenic attitudes about children....

KaylaKazeI think the problem here is certain people don't know what "shouldn't" means, even after it's been explained to them half a dozen times.07/01/2015 - 4:19pm
Andrew EisenWhat if creators heard our feedback, agreed with it and then... oh god... made a better show? The HORROR!!!07/01/2015 - 4:13pm
Andrew EisenI mean, next thing you know they'll make a YouTube video. A YOUTUBE VIDEO!!!07/01/2015 - 4:07pm
Andrew EisenHow DARE anyone write an opinion suggesting that people who suck at something might consider a better way to accomplish the same thing or improve so they suck less. The NERVE!07/01/2015 - 4:06pm
Goth_SkunkYes, but we complain about it amongst ourselves, we shake our heads, we sigh, shrug our shoulders and say 'oh well, what can you do?' We don't write articles for Wired and say 'Anyone can write about X, but should they? Probably not.'07/01/2015 - 3:57pm
Andrew EisenMy favorite is: "Zoom and enhance!"07/01/2015 - 3:55pm
E. Zachary KnightGoth, you must not hang out with many technology experts. We complain about bad portrayals of tech all the time.07/01/2015 - 3:52pm
Andrew EisenPeople should be free to write about anything their little hearts desire. Even if they suck at it. Maybe not the most advisable thing to do, depending on their personal goals. But that's why you listen and learn and improve! Or try to, anyway.07/01/2015 - 3:50pm
Andrew EisenAnd you're straying from the path a bit but the sentiment in and of itself I agree with.07/01/2015 - 3:47pm
Goth_SkunkBut, as in the example I provided with call tracing and cell phone triangulation, the audience lets it slide, even the subject matter experts.07/01/2015 - 3:47pm
Andrew EisenGreat! Maybe you'd change your mind if you read her reasons for suggesting such a thing, maybe not. But at least now you're opining what she actually said!07/01/2015 - 3:46pm
Goth_SkunkFor the sake of entertainment, people write about things they shouldn't write about all the time. If they stopped, most things fiction would cease to exist.07/01/2015 - 3:46pm
Goth_SkunkAnd I think that's a despicable thing to suggest, worse than someone who sucks at writing a rape scene doing so. By all means, if the rape scene was poorly written, criticize it after the fact.07/01/2015 - 3:45pm
Andrew EisenYou're not wrong that she's suggesting that people who suck at writing rape scenes (which is who "anyone" refers to) probably shouldn't, yes.07/01/2015 - 3:42pm
Goth_SkunkAnd I will point out again that you're wrong. It's quite plainly stated anyone can write a rape scene, but they probably shouldn't. She's very general in the statement because she's using the word 'anyone,' but I am not wrong.07/01/2015 - 3:39pm
Andrew EisenBut, at least that was a lot closer to what she's actually arguing.07/01/2015 - 3:38pm
Andrew EisenIf you read the article you'd realize why that comparison doesn't work.07/01/2015 - 3:37pm
Matthew Wilsonhttp://www.dota2.com/international/compendium/ the COMPENDIUM hit 15 mill, so that means valve got 60 million.07/01/2015 - 3:35pm
Goth_Skunkget it wrong, so should they write about their usage in their stories? Chances are, the answer is no.07/01/2015 - 3:34pm
Andrew EisenShe's also not saying people should not write about topics they're not experts in or otherwise personally experienced.07/01/2015 - 3:34pm
