Mayor Newsom Gets Unwelcome Housewarming Gift

San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom's new mansion is no longer quite this pristine.

Someone decided to take a bathroom break on the front steps of the home newly purchased by San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom and wife Jennifer Siebel-Newsom.

And it may be even worse, with an anonymous source telling the San Francisco Appeal that the poo-filled perp also broke in and left housewarming gifts on the furniture, as well.

This all comes amid questions being raised by City Supervisor Ross Mirkarimi, who represents the district the mayor recently moved into, about how much it costs San Francisco to keep Newsom safe.

While Los Angeles and Houston have made disclosures about the cost of keeping their civic leaders out of harm's way, the San Francisco Police Department has been less than forthcoming.

Mirkarimi started looking into the issue after it was revealed that a security detail traveled with Newsom on a personal trip to the mayor's wedding in Montana, and also accompany the carefully groomed mayor on trips across the state as California's Hair Apparent campaigns for governor.

Jackson West points out that no matter what, something smells funny here.
