I am disappointed that Menlo Park's largest employer is constantly in hot water for its privacy practices and attempt to deflect responsibility for hate speech and political attack ads be they from the left or right, U.S. or international. Such behavior taints their "donations" to the city and gives the appearance of trying burnish a reputation through the purchase of local good will.

Lawsuits don't matter to those people. They have more lawyers than they know what to do with. The AG needs to send some people to jail. You saw how much the college admission scandal people were freaked out by jail time. Putting Zuckerberg in jail is the only thing that will straighten out that company.

How about the AG look into Virginia Chang Kiirly holding 2 elected positions in San Mateo County. One on the Harbor District and the other on the fire District. She is up for re election in both in 2020.
