Those grumbling about the caliber of people camping out at Justin Herman plaza can't be thrilled about the latest wave of demonstrators drawn to OccupySF: politicians.
Last night a near-quorum of the Board of Supervisors squatted along with the squatters, which brings the OccupySF movement to a strange place indeed. A group notable for its lack of tangible goals or demands now has the ear — if not the cell phone numbers — of a platoon of the city's most powerful elected officials.
And, for those officials, what, exactly, does it mean to “support” OccupySF? And can you do so at night while passing tax breaks for large corporations during the day?
