Board of Supervisors passed resolution condemning anti-semitism. Retracts resolution hours later

The resolution, “Condemning Antisemitic and Homophobic Attacks on Senator Scott Wiener,” was greenlit early in the meeting in the ensuing hours, a tough debate over the city’s $14-billion budget transpired, during which Stefani criticized the budget proposal and ultimately voted against it. . Supporters of the resolution, including Wiener, suggested that the board’s rescinding of the earlier vote was motivated in part by political payback for Stefani’s tough stance on the budget. But the eight supervisors who moved to table the measure say they did so after questions were raised about its focus on a single official, and said they wished to expand its scope to condemn other forms of bias, such as racism and misogyny.
