Remember when Hillary Clinton said she was attacked by Bosnian snipers in the primaries last year? Gavin took some tips from the 2008 presidential primary candidate he endorsed, just having been busted by the SF Weekly for apparently creating out of whole cloth, for dramatic gubernatorial electoral effect, the San Quentin prison sentence of a foster sibling whom he says was like a brother to him but, when pressed, whose first and last name he’s now unable to remember.

In other news, I was blogging back in 2005, so how did I miss this detail in a Chronicle article where Gavin Newsom waxed rhapsodic about how said foster brother was the reason he was “so comfortable in the Bayview”? How’s those Bayview relationships going these days, Gavin?
