Ed Lee's Mustache: How Much Did It Cost?

Aaron Peskin is offended by fake mustaches

Perhaps one of the most memorable moments of the Run, Ed, Run campaign was back in June when Chinatown power broker Rose Pak ran out and purchased 20,000 stick-on mustaches, which look the one Ed Lee wears, to pass out at the Giants game where the mayor was expected to throw the first pitch.

But her plan to play politics proved to be a complete waste of money after Lee decided to use his game time as a moment to honor two firefighters who had just died in a house fire. A very pouty Pak told reporters at the time, “Now, I'm stuck with 20,000 mustaches, and I want to stick them on his ass.”

So what did she do with all of those mustaches?
