A news story probably not covered in SF politics yesterday was that two perspective candidates DID NOT make the ballot due to the lack of signatures.

Mike Zitterich who was hoping to run for AT-Large B did send me an email last night explaining to me his disappointment and hoped to run in the future. He said it was due to time constraints.

Immanuel Bassey has said very little except this to AL reporter Trevor Mitchell;

Bassey did not have enough valid signatures to get into the race, he tells me

I found out about Bassey last week and that he was recruited by some local politicians to run. Considering who they were I anticipated that he would make the ballot. I find it odd that if the rumor was true that he was recruited by these folks they didn’t help him gather signatures. Almost looked like a false flag operation to discourage others from running against Barranco.

Thank goodness Ingle qualified for the ballot and I encourage anyone that is on the fence in the SE district about the candidates to reach out to Mr. Ingle and get to know this incredible individual. As for Barranco, I hear very little about him except that he doesn’t pay his property taxes on time.

    Here’s all you need to know/remember about barrister Barranco -in addition to his tardy property tax habits: 1) he held a “picnic” for Krusty Gnome in his back yard in 2018, 2) City Councilors Erickson, Jensen and Neitzert along with Matt Paulson, TJ Nelson and other Trump lovers had a fundraiser for Barranco last November, and 3) he believes urban traffic “magnifies psychic friction”. I’m sure rubbing his tin foil beanie does the same thing.

    Much like when the Republican party recruited an underemployed and unaccomplished attorney named Jason Ravnsborg as a political newcomer to enter the party primary for US Senate to oppose Mike Rounds.
