Mayor Lee Discloses Two Gifts From Realtors

What's the latest with my campaign to sunshine San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee's gifts and donations, which stared earlier this week with my complaint to the Ethics Commission because I believe he has not fully met our disclosure laws?

The Mayor's Office yesterday quietly updated their disclosure page, which had last been updates on July 9, 2011, and revealed the date, donor, gift and financial interests with The City:

3/27/2013        Boston Properties Ceremonial Groundbreaking Shovel - Transbay Tower $300.00 Building permits as reported on the Department of Building Inspection's website:
4/16/2013 Kilroy Realty Ceremonial Groundbreaking Shovel - 350 Mission Groundbreaking $250.00 Building permits as reported on the Department of Building Inspection's website:
201301097557; 303-2nd St.; 1/9/2013
201111158958; 370-3rd St.; 11/15/2011

I emailed a few folks at the Mayor's press office seeking comments about the sudden updating, and if those two gifts were the extent of what Ed Lee has accepted since July 9, 2011. My request for a statement by the end of business today produced nothing but radio silence. Let's see how long the Mayor's paid publicists take before addressing my easy questions, and if more disclosures for past gifts see the light of day.
