"I will not dignify the substance of this smear by repeating it—if you read the accounts you will see there is no foundation to it. The reason is simple: it is untrue… I have in the past, and I will in the future, respond to people who reach out to me for help and advice. This is especially true when it comes to young people.… I remember when I was a teenager and I had nobody who I felt I could talk to at a time I desperately needed someone to give me advice and perspective about coming to terms with being gay. I came through it. Not everyone does…

Gay youth suicide rates, homelessness and depression are still too high… I didn't get into public life to allow my instinct to help others to be snuffed out by fear of sleazy misrepresentations or political manipulation. I understand the need for good judgment, and I keep within the bounds of propriety—as I did in this case."

Those "misrepresentations" were true.

Samuel Adams has sexual contact with a teenager in a city hall bathroom.
Therefore, we can do a lot better than Sam Adams, especially since he won;t take responsability.
Sexual activity with adults does not help any teenager. Adams was a selfish person willing to damage another person just to get his rocks off. Shame on his supporters.

Are there any normal moderate people who want to be a Commissioner? Nope, guess not.

"Instead, the investigation relied solely on past news coverage, Gonzalez' public letter to media, and interviews with former city staffers conducted by the lawyers Adams himself had hired."

sorry to be nitpickin' but an investigation couldn't have relied solely on one source and on two other sources

Moderate is far from normal, @3, and it's also far from what we need.

Mingus Mapps is still the best candidate for Commissioner Position #4.

I think it is weird that Chloe is trying to make it some kind of issue that Sam is running against her. Every reason she gives why Sam should have run against someone else could also be said about her choosing to challenge Novick instead of Fritz 4 years ago. May the best candidate win, but she hasn't done anything to earn a safe seat with no challengers.

YASSSSS, RIVA!!! Give Adams and Eudaly something to think about as we go on without either of them.
