The F-word in politics
San Francisco Supervisor Chris Daly made an interesting New Year’s resolution in January.
Daly, who had been known to drop the F-word at various public meetings in the past, vowed that he would use the obscenity at every Board of Supervisor’s meeting this year, according to the San Francisco ABC news affiliate KGO-TV. The reaction from his fellow supervisors was, unsurprisingly, not supportive.
“I actually dropped off a bar of soap in his office so that he could use it to clean up his language,” Board President David Chiu told KGO-TV.
Later, Daly told a Facebook follower that he had made the resolution as a “quick rebuff to [his inclusion on] the [Bay] Guardian [newspaper’s] ‘Worst of 2009,'” according to the San Francisco Examiner.
