Malia Cohen, who is facing a re-election challenge from a Prop. B ally, voted to support Prop. B – and Sup. David Chiu, who was a leader in the fight against 8 Washington, abstained, in effect giving the developers the edge. "This shows that the real-estate industry now controls the San Francisco Democratic Party," Prop. B author John Golinger told me after the vote.
