  1. His city is the classic democrat occupied basket case. Huge taxes, lousy roads, crime is skyrocketing, crumbling infrastructure, a out of control homeliness population due to terrible city financial decisions, and housing that no one can afford etc.Now he’s going to spend millions defending illegal aliens who have busted our borders and are part of the cities crime issue like the killer who murdered Kate..Nice going Ed.. Looks like San Francisco is ripe to have President Trump yank his federal funding.. Looking forward to that one..
