Why Leland Yee Won the Sierra Club Endorsement

Somebody has it out for state Sen. Leland Yee — someone aside from Rush Limbaugh.

When the news hit that the highly esteemed Sierra Club had tossed its support behind Yee for mayor, Twitter started buzzing; City Hall insiders — and even reporters — hinted that something wasn't quite right with this endorsement.

Upon announcing the endorsement, Sierra Club chairman John Rizzo issued a statement, saying Yee has the strongest and “most established environmental record of the candidates running for mayor.” Yet City Hall insiders argue otherwise, claiming the state senator has one of the worst environmental records of any mayoral candidate.
