Jennifer Seibel, Gavin Newsom Wedding

Mayor Gavin Newsom took a little breather from busy job as a Crime Fighter and one giant step towards a Political Makeover to advance his Gav4Gov ambitions, marring actress Jennifer Siebel on Saturday at Siebel's parents' Montana Ranch.

It is the 34-year-old Siebel's first marriage and the second for Newsom, who divorced legal analyst Kimberly Guilfoyle in March 2006.

Newsom met Siebel in October 2006 and they have been together ever since. Siebel was at Newsom's side when he was sworn in for his second term as mayor in January. She also stood by him after he publicly admitted to having had an affair with a staff member's wife and a drinking problem.

U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi traveled to Montana to attend the wedding as did other friends and family. Conspiculously, Senator Dianne Feinstein was not invited.

    Newsom Back Behind Bars

    Nope, not San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom's favorite watering hole, Plumpjack and Balboa Cafe owned by Newsom and former socialite pal, Billy Getty.

    Rather, an unusual jailhouse visit to obtain access codes to the city's computer network.

    City engineer Terry Childs had been accused of withholding the access codes and has been jailed since July 13 on felony counts. Prosecutors said he was trying to block access to a vital city network.

    A team of code crackers brought in from Cisco Systems had been working around the clock to try to decipher Childs' codes, but with only marginal success.

    Then, Childs' lawyer, Erin Crane, called the mayor's office Monday afternoon, offering a jailhouse meeting.

    "It wasn't cheap and I just couldn't see us keep spending that kind of money"

    Without hesitation, the mayor acted to pay a secret visit to the jail and waled away with the codes. He was there inside of thirty minutes.

    • Do not contact City Attorney, Kamila Harris.
    • Do not contact Chief of Police, Heather Fong.
    • Do pass go and collect the code!

    The lawyer says Childs had been the victim of a plot to force him out of his job.I admire both Child's enginuity born of his necessity, not compunction, to leverage his hand to win an audiance with the mayor, attempting to navagate through the murky judicial system as well as Newsom's willingness to quickly grant it on the City's behalf - saving taxpayers money!

    This is just another reason why Gavin Newsom does NOT suck indeed!

    Are Ya Insane?

    If a picture's worth a 1000 votes, the Nader for President campaign likely owes Crow Soup (Flickr) the reminaing 500 (they haven't got) for snapping this gem.

    With Barack Obama running as the Democratic nominee, Nader and company will be hard-pressed to reach Green Party activists/pacifists.

    Too bad, Republican hopeful and genuine Independent candidate, John McCain won't benefit by the hippy vote as George W. Bush did before him.

    But wait! Act now, and you also get Matt Gonzalez. How do we do it?

    Substraction by addition!

    Bottom of the barrel for Bottom of the ticket, Matt Gonazlez too weak to run against Gavin Newsom, wants to be a heartbeat away from leader of the free world. Are ya insane?

    Gonzo's the Major League equivalent of a AAA washout scratching his initials into an All-Star ballot.

    Bush league! This is a National Election, not the Lottery. If ya really care about the environment, stop wasting our time, dime and littering the streets with your worthless signs.

    It was time to hang it up, before you began.

    Newsom Stalker Crashes Car; Walks Into B.A.R.

    Han Shin, the man accused last year of stalking Mayor Gavin Newsom and trying to run over his ex-boyfriend's roommate, found himself in trouble again this week after he allegedly rammed his car into the driver of another vehicle following a traffic accident. It is the second time in 18 months that Shin has been accused of trying to run someone over.

    The latest incident occurred around noon Wednesday, July 9 at the intersection of 9th and Harrison streets. Police arrested Shin, 43, who was wearing sandals, yellow shorts cut above the knee, and a yellow and black patterned silk collared shirt - so sorry to say, no purple latex gloves. He was charged with aggravated assault with an automobile weapon. As of Friday, Shin remained in San Francisco County jail.

    According to police, Shin and another driver were involved in a traffic accident after which Shin allegedly drove his Toyota Corolla LE into the other driver.

    "There was some type of prior contact between the two. When the victim stopped at the traffic light, the suspect drove into the victim's vehicle intentionally," said police spokesman Sergeant Neville Gittens.
    "then the suspect intentionally ran into the other person."
    According to eyewitness accounts, soon after the accident Shin walked toward the Bay Area Reporter (B.A.R.) offices on 9th Street. Another driver warned him that he was leaving the scene of an accident. A B.A.R. staffer was later told that he'd hit both vehicles and had asked,
    "Where's the Bay Area Reporter?"
    According to the staff member, Shin entered the office whimpering and carrying large, rolled up pieces of paper, folders, and a bag loaded with more papers.

    Not knowing about the accident, staff asked if there was something wrong, and if he wanted them to call police. Shin replied:
    "I'm afraid of the police."
    That's when staff members recognized him and one staffer told Shin he remembered him as the person who was found in Mayor Newsom's apartment building.

    Shin adopted a somber, serious tone and asked, "What do you know about it?" After that, he started babbling incoherently.

    When Shin started to open a small gate that leads past the B.A.R. 's front desk, as if he wanted to come back and talk to staff, he was told, "Just leave, just get out."

    Shin got huffy, grabbed his things, and as he turned to leave yelled back:
    "Fucking fags!"
    Back outside, Shin, who'd been screaming during much of the accident's aftermath – at one point, a police officer tugged on his shirt in an apparent attempt to get him to calm down – eventually appeared to be in better spirits.

    As he stood outside the Vagabond Inn, which is next door to the B.A.R., he raised his hands in the air, shimmied, and sang part of the Brenda Lee classic "I'm Sorry." Shin also rambled, invoking the names of Madonna and Benjamin Franklin as an officer stood a few feet across from him.

    Shin, a new age author and beauty contestant organizer, didn't resist as police handcuffed him moments later and led him away.

    In February 2007, Shin was caught trying to break into Newsom's Pacific Heights apartment building and was charged with stalking the debonair politician. He reportedly had been seen photographing the mayor below the waist at a public event and aggressively grabbed Newsom.

    Shin denied the charges, but a San Francisco Superior Court commissioner issued a three-year restraining order against Shin, ordering him to stay at least 100 yards from Newsom.

    Later that month Shin faced numerous charges in Contra Costa County, including one count of first-degree residential burglary, three counts of assault with a deadly weapon and one count felony vandalism stemming from a February 28 incident in San Ramon.

    Prosecutors alleged that Shin went to the home of his former lover to confront him, but when the man wasn't at home, Shin allegedly barged into the residence, took some money and a photograph of the former boyfriend and left. The man's roommate followed Shin outside, according to police, and Shin allegedly tried to run him over three times with his car.
