Public power advocates---take a bow, Bay Guardian and Ross Mirkarimi---need to take a close look at the more or less final election numbers and compare the vote on public power with the vote on legalizing prostitution:
Proposition H (public power): lost 61% to 39% (210,963 against and 132,499 for).
Proposition K (legalizing prostitution in SF): lost 59% to 41% (201, 482 against and 139,471 for).
More people voted to legalize prostitution (139,471) than voted for public power (132,499).
