I was observing Todd Gloria's Twitter feed yesterday (BTW he has somehow managed to block me on Twitter as well as Facebook), and I saw a very curious post.

He posted a photo of him and ex-mayor and developer champion Jerry Sanders together in North Park.

Here is the tweet:

"Enjoying craft ‪#‎beer‬ at @ThornStBrewery opening in ‪#‎NorthPark‬ w/ owner Dennis O'Connor & former Mayor Jerry Sanders. "

The two are strange bedfellows for sure. One has to wonder what they had to discuss on a Sunday afternoon....

Perhaps their seemingly successful campaign to boot Mayor Filner so City Council could push the Plaza De Panama Project through?

Perhaps the claims of sexual harassment being made by Sanders ex-chief of staff?

Perhaps Todd Gloria's eminent mayoral campaign to replace Filner?

Who knows, but the meeting is certainly strange in light of the political ongoings of late.

One has to wonder if the lynching of Filner was all planned.

This was the grand opening of this pub, which had a soft opening earlier this year. The former mayor had long stated he would attend, and Gloria does show up at various North Park events, because he is the representative on the council. He would have an understandable motive to associate himself with a recent mayor not currently under investigation, who has a pleasant demeanor.

Of course one has no way of knowing how long or of what they spoke, so you may be correct. On the other hand, it does not seem on its face to be suspicious.

All I can say is, Dennis looks great and the Imperial IPA is quite floral :)
