The progressives on the board of supervisors made it clear that they wanted to hold off on a vote that would make Ed Lee interim mayor until Friday so they could — at the very least – talk to the guy before making him chief executive.
But Lee, who is reportedly in Hong Kong or maybe even Taiwan by now, is adding insult to injury — he's not returning their calls.
“I've called him, I've e-mailed him and I've not heard back” said Supervisor John Avalos. “Does he know what's going on? Is he even aware that he has been nominated?”
