Description

"For years, the Bay Guardian had heard rumors that to get the right to do business in Dan Francisco, you had to 'grease the skids' with [our] mayor, Willie Brown -- the former Speaker of the California Assembly. That meant paying money to somebody's campaign fund or paying lobbyist friends of the mayor handsomely to get his support...Here were credible sources admitting they had been asked to pay a bribe to get the mayor's blessing for a development project. Because they never paid it, they didn't get the deal."
