Olague plays race and gender cards

Photo by Steve Rhodes

Planning commissioner Christina Olague went Rose Pak one better: she played the race card and the gender card at a recent Ethics Commission meeting. From the Bay Citizen:
Christina Olague, a planning commissioner who co-chaired the “Run, Ed, Run” campaign, condemned what she said amounted to “two white men”---St. Croix and Peskin---dictating “to me, a colored woman, my choices of political behavior.”
Recall that Olague was one of the opportunistic Gang of Four---Ross Mirkarimi, Jane Kim, John Rizzo, and Olague---that jumped from the Green Party to the Democratic Party after the election of Barak Obama and the city's left-wing Democratic County Central Committee made being a Democrat fashionable again here in Progressive Land.

Of course I'm a white man and thus presumably a racist and a sexist.

Shouldn't she have said, "dictating 'to me, a woman of color'"?

Hell, I thought she was a Jew. Her "political behavior" includes the crassest kind of opportunism, following The Murk in his betrayal of the party he helped get on the ballot in California.
