8 Washington Fight Gets Ugly

“It is crucial that the State Lands Commission be perceived as entirely impartial in regards to its decision on this matter,” Jon Golinger said in a letter to Newsom’s office Thursday. Golinger, head of Telegraph Hill Neighbors and long an opponent of the 8 Washington Street project on The Embarcadero, is raising the ugly specter of pay-for-play with developer Simon Snellgrove's legal 2006 and 2008 contributions to Gavin Newsom's (remember him?) campaigns. As one of three members of the State Lands Commission, Lt. Governor Newsom gets to vote on the sale of Seawall Lot 351 to Snellgrove's partnership. [City Insider/SF Gate]
