Feinstein seeks special treatment to undo tax sale of deadbeat rich people’s property

Sen. Dianne Feinstein is coming down hard on the side of Presidio Terrace residents outraged that San Francisco sold their gated, private street to a South Bay couple.

Feinstein, who lived in Presidio Terrace for more than 20 years, wants the Board of Supervisors to take the unprecedented step of overturning a tax-default sale that delivered the neighborhood’s common areas to the young couple. It was bureaucratic bungling by the city’s treasurer-tax collector’s office, she said, that resulted in residents’ failure to pay property taxes on the street and sidewalks for three decades.

The state’s senior senator told the supervisors in a letter mailed Monday that her first reaction to the news that the street had been sold for $90,100 was one of “near disbelief.”

Can you blame her? She’s rich, and clearly has come to believe that the rule of law does not apply to her.
