After rape accusation, S.F. women's group says community leaders are welcoming back Jon Jacobo
Two months after a San Francisco tenant rights advocate publicly accused rising political star Jon Jacobo of rape, a powerful women's political organization is demanding accountability, saying that some city and community leaders are ushering the...
If you are a part of the right corrupt groups in SF then you can get away with just about anything
Dude is a close friend and vacations with Matt Haney. That should tell you how connected he is. Corrupt friends don’t let their cash flow go to jail.
The story was that he was a repeat offender but nobody will pursue it because of the social and career repercussions.
People are not running out and getting rape kits done the morning after a night of consenual sex.
The court syatem is brutal on victims, it is reasonable to decide against pressing charges.
Hugely disappointed here in Jane Kim, it's reasonable to support your friends through an accusation, but it does matter how you support them...acting like they didnt do anything isnt right.
As someone who likes Matt Haney I've got to say how incredibly disappointed I am in him. Haney was also at the Rose Pak gala, one of the big events Kim brought Jacobo to as a plus one. Matt is a close friend of Jacobo. Matt would have unavoidably interacted with him. The fact that Haney did not, apparently, tell Jacobo to get out? Does not seem to have objected at all? That's disappointing and disgusting.
And I get it. I genuinely do. When you like someone it's hard to say "hey dude you're an alleged rapist you should not be at this party." Doubly so when you're running for a higher office and the person who brought your friend the alleged rapist is your still popular predecessor Jane Kim who has made it abundantly clear that she supports Jacobo in every way.
But Matt, if you're not willing to stand up to your friends you need to get out of politics. Asking Jacobo to leave, or at least tweeting that night about your unhappiness that he was at the fancy party you were also at is the bare minimum. You didn't do it. Why should we trust you with higher office?
And okay. I was not at the Rose Pak Gala last month, because we're in a pandemic and it seemed inappropriate. If I'd known half the BoS was going to show up I would have gone. But I didn't. Maybe Haney never saw or interacted with Jacobo and Kim. But it seems doubtful, since he and Jacobo were friends and Kim was his predecessor in D6.
Names that have come up on the ultra left as sexual-satisfaction seeking types: Jacobo, Buttar, Compost, another not yet named (hint: only a bit taller than Compost).
