Californians can't say that they don't get what they desereve. Here is a guy who ran an inept, incompetent Supervisor's office and was incapable of creating consensus and progress on simple issues. He and his peers were on the watch while the Treasurer's office lost 6% of the Treasury ($155M). Now we promote that incompetence to Sacramento, all because he won the race to have the "D" next to his name.

Holding the Supervisors accountable for the Treasury loss of 6% is ludicrous, especially when it was primarily due to (i) the economic collapse and (ii) fraud by a large financial firm.
