Great Video From Billionaires Who Don’t Vote In San Francisco
October 25, 2011
Today a new video featuring Bay Area 1%, came out in support of Mayor Ed Lee. The video is the work of an independent expenditure group called San Franciscans for Jobs and Good Government headed by a Silicon Valley “angel investor.“ The group has also gotten financial help from Sean Parker – you know, the guy played by Justin Timberlake.
The video is set to a remix of MC Hammer’s song "2 Legit 2 Quit" with Hammer himself, Twitter co-founder Biz Stone, Google’s Marissa Mayer and Giants Closer Brian Wilson. All are endorsing mayoral candidate Ed Lee. It’s a great video showing how billionaires get down.
One small problem, these corporate big wigs aren’t actually registered to vote in San Francisco. So while they want you to vote for Ed Lee, they can’t. According to the San Francisco Department of Elections, Brian Wilson, Biz Stone, Marissa Mayer, Jed York and Ronnie Loft can’t vote in San Francisco. GovFresh founder Luke Fretwell designed the “Fear the Stache” t-shirts featured throughout the video but didn’t get due credit.
