First Fallout From Planning Department's Porn Scandal?

Multiple sources within the planning department confirmed to SF Weekly that influential zoning administrator Larry Badiner tearfully cleaned out his desk and carted off his belongings last week.

Badiner, a 20-plus year veteran of the department, was the most senior planner recommended for firing by department head John Rahaim. At issue was a years-long office practice of sending and receiving e-mails with pornographic imagery and racy content on office computers, as first reported earlier this month by the San Francisco Chronicle. While Badiner was not accused of sending the e-mails, the manager allegedly did not make any moves to stop their circulation.

SF Weekly has filed a public records request to obtain samples of the offending messages. An unnamed source told the Chronicle they contained Debbie Does Dallas-caliber imagery.
