this feels like a PR piece for Community Housing Works. Those guys have built some of the worst buildings in the whole city. They are as corrupt as can be. I dont like how this piece keeps insisting its not a nahd-out, its a loan.....That is not true. If the loan is being subsidized by tax dollars which it is then it is a handout! We should be asking in a city and a state that is bankrupt why are we choosing to spend what little money we have bribing people to buy real estate?

the truth of the matter is San Diego is just finding more creative ways to subsidize the building industry that runs this town so they are using our tax dollars that should be fixing our streets to bribe people to buy the glut. I really hate it when this corporate building industry maffia tries to hide under the umbrella of helping the poor. There is absolutely no help for renters. There is an 8 yr waiting list to get assistance to pay your rent but if you will buy a house we will give you $70k interest free.

This is why we need alternative newspapers. The Urinal Tribune would never publish something like this. I found some articles about the meeting but I could not find any opinion on the situation. It is scary to think that SDG&E has paid off at least one of the commissioners. It is nice to see that the Reader is on top of this. The more corrupt politicos you can expose, the better for us citizens.

I hope the one in Escondido closes too. I hate the stupid preferred cards, game pieces, coupons and other silly stuff. I prefer Stater Bros. 'cause the prices are automatically lower. They don't make you suffer for the discounts. But I would miss the girls and Eric who work at the Escondido store. They are good friends.

University of California Regents have approved creation of a vice-chancellorship for Equity, Diversity and Inclusion at UCSD, naming Linda S. Greene to the post at an annual base salary of $250,000, according to closed session documents released after today's meeting in San Francisco.

IDIOTS

Taxes are DOA, and this is the reason.......right here.

The timing of this story is a bit off. It should have appeared in the same issues that mentioned the free vibrator giveaway.

Olympics! Thanks for the laugh.

I'd kill to see the Dems get so energetic about financial reform or health care

I'd kill to see Dems get energetic about the poor and middle class, like they used to care, instead of throwing them under the bus for public employees.

Would you come forward and say that the mayor slobbered on you? That he hit on you? That he groped your backside, patted your rear or cornered you in order to make a crude pass?

If true, these are deeply humiliating and disturbing incidents.

If you're a guy, I bet you would not come forward if a powerful man suddenly did this to you.

Especially if you did not speak up, if you did not punch him out, if you did not do the right thing, whatever it was. Especially if you have children. And a wife. And a career. And you think maybe you imagined it or misinterpreted it.

Especially if reporting it publicly would guarantee that this would make it into the first paragraph of your obituary. Even the first sentence, as it almost certainly will for Irene McCormack Jackson.

And, of course, anyone who comes forward will become an instant target of both legitimate credibility questions and vicious smears.

Why didn't you fight back? Why didn't you report it? Are you after money? Political revenge? What were you wearing? Are you attractive? Are you young or old? You're 72? Nobody harasses a 72 year old. Are you a Republican? Are you a DINO? Were you bought off? Where's your evidence?

Honestly, I think there is no woman alive that any of you skeptics would find credible.

That's because every woman alive will have a connection that will look suspicious to you.

Tired_of_PC: There is an answer to your question. And it is this: rational business people understand market economics and trade-offs and how to evaluate risks WHEN THEY ARE USING THEIR OWN MONEY, OR THEIR COMPANY'S MONEY.

But when they are using taxpayer money, as they are with all corporate welfare scams such as the convention center expansion, rationality goes out the window.

This goes to the heart of the Filner lynching. Filner tried to bring rational decision-making to corporate welfare projects. So he was taking the goose laying golden eggs away from the downtown crowd.

It knew long before he was elected that he was vulnerable because of his dealings with women. So as soon as he tried to rein in corporate welfare and runaway real estate development, he was attacked with the help of a naive press. Best, Don Bauder

It's interesting that so called progressives are defending mysoginy and sexual assault so vigorously. I guess we now know where they stand on women's rights.

Aug. 19, 2013

Let's hope a resignation is forthcoming. Enough is enough.

Aug. 19, 2013

"Due process" is something you get in a court of law--not politics.

The bottom line is that Filner can no longer, and will never be able to govern this city effectively. The people of SD deserve better than to have this selfish philanderer running the city into the ground.

Aug. 19, 2013

I encourage everyone to read the "Fieldofschemes.com" link that Don Bauder mentions in his story above. VERY interesting reading.

Oh boo hoo. Bad behavior has consequences.

Don Bauder for Mayor!

Psycholizard: That is certainly true in San Diego. Best, Don Bauder

Seems like truth telling disqualifies candidates for public office.

ImJustABill: Yes, this is slavery -- no doubt about it. Some could get life sentences, and it sounds like they deserve it. Best, Don Bauder
