Lie, Ed, Lie Twitter Account Up and Running

Even before Mayor Ed Lee could officially sign the paperwork declaring his candidacy for mayor, some pissed-off people cleverly created the "Lie, Ed, Lie" Twitter account, riffing off his about-face decision to run for mayor.

The account was created about five hours ago, stating "I was appointed Mayor based on a lie. Now I plan to run for Mayor because Rose Pak would bitch slap me if I didn't."

The first post came shortly after, casually stating: "I can hardly sleep tonight because this morning Rose Pak & I will announce our campaign for Mayor."

The next post came nearly an hour ago, saying, "Even though I filed

paperwork this morning to be a candidate for Mayor, can I still tell

people I'm not running?"

Could former Supervisor Chris Daly be behind this fake Twitter account? Daly promised to be at City Hall today with a group of other anti-Lee folks to tell him what a liar he is.

Some other great Tweets:

- Dear Ethics Commission: Pls be nice to my "Run Ed Run" friends at today's hearing. I didn't know what they were doing. Really.

- Thinking about shaving my moustache for tonight's Mayoral debate at The Castro Theatre to make even more headline news.

- Rose Pak and Willie Brown told me to watch this video today to prepare for all my media interviews: .

  • San Francisco Street Food Festival 2014
    The San Francisco Street Food Festival was another success this year. Dozens of vendors with original, unheard-of creations, such as deep fried mac and cheese on a stick, black pea paste pancakes, and Korean quesadillas. Then there was the comfort foods we've grown accustomed to, like creme bruleé, shrimp rolls, and pound cake. Photographs by Mabel Jimenez.
