Turns out there was more wrong with the U-T editorial below than just the editorial board’s conclusions. I quoted its passage about the vote on the closed session sewer item in 2002. They said it was a 7-2 vote.
But Scott Peters wasn’t in attendance that day so he didn’t, as the U-T had said, vote with the majority. And without him, there’s no way nine people could have voted on the item, so there’s no way the U-T ed board could have been correct that it was a 7-2 vote.
Also, reader DR whose real name rhymes with Rave Dolland, points out that a bit more rational account of Donna Frye’s culpability exists in this editorial in CityBeat. Graciously, CityBeat directed people to my Monday column. So they must know what they’re talking about.
