It is illegal for any contractor that receives public money from San Francisco to use that money for political activity
San Francisco's standard provisons of all contractors with the city, in part
Article 18.10 of this legally binding agreement, entitled, Prohibition on Political Activity with City Funds states, "In accordance with San Francisco Administrative Code Chapter 12.g, no funds appropriated by the City for this Agreement may be expended for organizing, creating, funding, participating in, supporting, or attempting to influence any political campaign for a candidate or for a ballot measure. Furthermore, this same article states, "In the event Grantee, or any staff member in association with Grant, engages in any Political Activity, then (i) Grantee shall keep and maintain appropriate records to evidence compliance with this section, and (ii) Grantee shall have the burden to prove that no funding from this Agreement has been used for such Political Activity. Grantee agrees to cooperate with any audit by City or designee in order to ensure compliance with this section
It is the number one comment from the latest probe into Mayor Ed Lee's campaign (Chronicle)

My personal understanding from having been resident at the Boyd Hotel at 41 Jones Street, is that the Lee Campaign has access to the internal resident files of the Tenderloin Housing Clinic. The THC is a Randy Shaw operation, and recipient of many tens of millions of dollars from the City's Care-not-cash Program. The THC, as Mr. Shaw's operation is known in the Tenderloin has over 22 SRO Properties. Those thousands of tenants all have Tenant Reps who were pressured to be advocates for Jane Kim in her 2010 Supervisors Race funded partially by a $10,000 dollar campaign contribution by Willie Brown. Enrique Pearce ran the Kim Campaign with funding and strong Chinese Community support from Rose Pak and operates the same operation that has committed the voter frauds and felony election frauds, by people who have been collecting ballots from the Chinese Community on Stockton Street, in the news. I have personal friends who have asked me, how the hell did the Ed Lee campaign get their unlisted phone numbers? For Jane Kim and Ed Lee to use the internal private client records of the recipient Non-Profits, such as the THC, for voter fraud is beyond unethical. Any investigation into the THC Tenant Reps, who work at and are compensated by the SRO Collaborative will yield more evidence of fraud, ballot tampering, and organized pressure on the poor people for their votes so as not to loose programs. Mayor Lee, like Mayor Newsom before, both cut deeply into the programs for the poor, and the poor are in real fear. What I see is the link between the offices of Jane Kim at City Hall, the offices of Ed Lee as Mayor, and Rose Pak as well as Mr. Pearce and the others from the Kim for Supervisor in District 6 Campaign. Willie Brown is in the middle of this, and the District Attorney needs to recuse himself from this investigation and turn the whole case over to the Feds. There is too much Official Corruption in the Official Family for the DA to be impartial here.
