The Chronicle reports that employees of the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission are being investigated for allegedly using city computers to share porn and visit online gambling websites.
More than two dozen employees in two water-distribution units were being looked at in the probe, although some of them now appear to have had no or only peripheral involvement, such as receiving a pornographic e-mail from a colleague and not reporting it, sources familiar with the case said.
Mayor Ed Lee is shaking things up on the Housing Authority board of commissioners, according to the Examiner. Late last week, Lee got six of the seven commission members to resign. Replacements were announced Friday.
Gone is the Rev. Amos Brown, the commission president who’s been a member since 2004 and who’s also head of the NAACP’s local chapter and a former city supervisor. Mirian Saez, director of the Treasure Island Development Authority, also has departed. Along with the other four, they were appointees of former Mayor Gavin Newsom.
In their places, Lee has tapped top-level staffers from the District Attorney’s Office, Office of Economic and Workforce Development, Human Resources Department and Human Services Agency. No new president has been selected. The commission’s next scheduled meeting is Thursday.
Only Patricia Thomas, a Lee appointee who lives in the Ping Yuen projects in Chinatown, remains. The other resident seat is vacant.
