Mayor Gavin Newsom issued a statement today asking Supervisor
Ed Jew to resign his seat in the wake of the most recent federal
charges alleging the Supervisor solicited cash payments from
San Francisco business owners.
Supervisor Jew now has the task of defending himself against
two separate criminal investigations in addition to a third civil
proceeding. At this point, it is clearly in the best interest
of his constituents and our city that he resign his official duties
and focus his attention on these civil and criminal proceedings,
