`Scan-doval' Sandoval of Michael Savage attack mired in election corruption

San Francisco Supervisor Gerardo Sandoval, latest, self-appointed, hitman in strategy aimed to silence America's talk show radio, is the same Sandoval mired in election corruption.

In some corners, election corruption earned the supervisor the nickname of Gerardo `Scandoval".

Sandoval's payment of at least $10,000 to his wife, Amy Harrington for work on his re-election campaign in 2004, continued to dog him into his unsuccessful race for city assessor-recorder.

Eric Jaye, the campaign manager for incumbent city Assessor Phil Ting, whom Sandoval was trying to unseat, called the payment "highly unusual".

Sandoval, Savage "Campaign reporting documents filed after last November's supervisorial election show Sandoval paid Harrington for unspecified campaign work. There is no anti-nepotism provision in local campaign finance law. Sandoval is one of two people challenging Ting in the Nov. 8 election. The other candidate is Ron Chun, a tax lawyer who once worked in the assessor's office." (San Francisco Chronicle, Aug. 25, 2005). "The campaign finance reporting statement in which the $10,000 salary owed Harrington showed up was for the Oct. 17-Dec. 31, 2004 reporting and wasn't available for public review until after the November election. A later report, filed this year, showed that Harrington had gotten paid."

San Francisco Pooh-Bahs like Sandoval are trying to force taxpayers to pay for immigrants' green cards and citizenship and in trying to hoodwink their own constituents have introduced a resolution condemning national radio talk-show host Michael Savage for what they brand as his "defamatory language…against immigrants."

Sandoval's resolution is ostensibly in response to Savage's July 5 Savage Nation broadcast, when a talker commented on a group of student activists who had announced they were fasting in support of changes in immigration policy.

"I would say, let them fast until they starve to death," quipped Savage, "then that solves the problem."

Why Sandoval waited to strike until well over one month later is nobody's guess, least of all the millions of listeners now rushing to the radio giant's side.

A practicing attorney, Sandoval's parents emigrated to the U.S. from Mexico in 1951.

This is the same Sandoval who said on Wednesday that "many media outlets are using this as an opportunity to slander the Muslim community and, unfortunately, even black African-Americans as a whole" when the Black Muslim bakery in Oakland was raided by police after some of its people were implicated in the recent murder of a reporter that was investigating them.

This is also the same Sandoval who told Fox News that the United States should not have a military, an insult unprecedented to America's courageous troops in harm's way and fighting words to the millions of patriots who see Michael Savage as their leader.

Savage supporters inundated the San Francisco Examiner website in a story siding with Savage.

"Hey Sandoval, we are not outraged at Michael Savage because we agree with him…check the polls on immigration, lame-o," one Savage supporter posted.

"If we had more Michael Savages and less milk toast leaders we wouldn't be in this situation," leveled another. "They are taking over and bringing our country down to a 3rd world level. Thank God for the Michael Savages and the other true AMERICANS."

In typical democratic fashion, Sandoval told the Examiner that he intends to hold a press conference on the steps of City Hall Tuesday just before the entire Board of Supervisors votes on his resolution against Savage.

Tar and feather pots will be ready to greet Sandoval when he arrives on city hall steps.
