I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: Brock and I will go anywhere with free drinks and free sliders. We will also go anywhere for Mark Leno. Last night, all of those glorious factors were combined with free valet parking and a gay club.
I almost died.
State Senator and Saint Mark Leno was having a fabulous party, the reasons for which I still can’t put my finger on. But he’s gay. The man doesn’t need a reason. The Who’s Who of the Homo Community was there is full force and here’s what I can report:
Supervisor Sophie Maxwell introduced Assessor Phil Ting as the Treasurer. Somewhere, Jose Cisneros is gasping, “Oh hell no!”
Supervisors Bevan Dufty, Ross Mirkarimi and David Campos were also there, although I spoke with none of them. Ross kind of scares me, Bevan was swamped and…who wants to talk to David Campos? Actually, I’ve never heard him speak. Maybe he’s fascinating. David Campos could be the most interesting person in the world. He just doesn’t look it.
I chatted with D8 Candidates Rebecca Prozan and Scott Wiener, both of whom were lovely, friendly and funny.
I also spoke with D8 Candidate Laura Spanjian.
Mark gets a little flack for never meeting a microphone he didn’t like, but I have to say, he’s a wonderful speaker. Suddenly, I care deeply about some ballot measure in Maine. In fact, I think Mark and I should go to Maine and protest.
