We all know the query about who will watch the watchmen. But what about the watchmen's consultants?
After Dennis Herrera's tubthumping that a full-blown investigation was required of alleged money-laundering after shuttle bus drivers claimed they were made to donate to Mayor Ed Lee, District Attorney George Gascón has done just that.
You'd think it's a no-brainer to open an investigation into financial improprieties when the Bay Citizen quotes drivers baldly alleging a conspiracy to evade campaign finance laws and benefit the mayor. And this is true. But mayoral candidate Herrera and DA candidate Gascón share more than the opinion this matter bears looking into. They also both have Whitehurst and Mosher Campaigns calling their shots.
