Has Contra Costa's Assessor Been a Bad Boy?

A fascinating profile of Contra Costa assessor Gus Kramer is rife with juicy details. A former San Francisco mortuary student, Gus has been tangled up in retribution against an employee who accused him of discrimination, lawsuits over landslides and sewer pipes, double-dipping on the city payroll, and weird costumes involving garters and Augustus Caesar. His daughter in law calls him a snake! Like we said -- IT'S FASCINATING. All the story needs is a steamy love story and it's a Nora Roberts novel. Speaking of which, did you read that New Yorker article about romance novels? IT'S FASCINATING. [Contra Costa Times]
