San Francisco's Red Chinese Mayor, Ed Lee, who made his bones suing landlords as an attorney for the Asian Law Caucus, has been found out to be the candidate of choice for landlords.

Ed Lee Donors Face Money-Laundering Allegations
San Francisco -- A man infamous among San Francisco renters for strong-arming tenants out of rent-controlled apartments owned by one of the city's most notorious landlords directed employees to donate to Mayor Ed Lee's election campaign, telling them they would be "reimbursed right away," according to an e-mail obtained by The Chronicle.
The district attorney's office is now "evaluating" the matter, its third probe into alleged wrongdoing by Lee's supporters.
Lee's campaign said it was the victim in the incident and was unaware of the apparent violation of state law, which prohibits donating in someone else's name or being reimbursed for a contribution. It's the second time Lee donors have come under scrutiny for alleged money laundering in the race.
"If this is true, then these people have perjured themselves," Lee campaign spokesman Tony Winnicker said when The Chronicle informed him about the donations. "They looked directly into the eyes of our campaign staff and lied, and they should be held accountable."
This is of course reminiscent of the campaign donations to Barak Hussein Obama and Billyjeff Bentpecker by poor Chinese immigrants, who were, in fact, passthroughs for wealthy Chinese donors.
But it is all the more rich since Lee was a well known racist radical in the 70s and 80s who with other communists waged continual warfare on San Francisco property owners.
Even more rich, as Lee was a guest of honor at the reception for Red Chinese dictator Hu Jintao at the White House. The Red Chinese, of course, treated landlords a lot differently than the new San Francisco Mayor does now. They shot over a million landlords after the 1949 revolution. Something that the Red Ed Lee would probably have done in the 70s as well. But not now, it is all about the Benjamins. But then, so is the new Chinese Communist Party, a kleptocracy much like the Democrat Party.
Oh, and he is the son of immigrants. Just putting that out, ya know. And, of interest, is that the Chinese are now the landlord class in San Francisco. Just puttin' that out, ya know...
