LENA TAM: Should the city sue? (Poll)
Members of the City Council are set to meet in a closed session scheduled for 6 p.m. today to decide whether to sue City Councilwoman Lena Tam because top city staffers believe she leaked confidential information and violated state open meetings laws by including multiple council members on e-mails.
Tam has denied she did anything wrong, and last week District Attorney Nancy O’Malley said she didn’t plan to press a case against Tam, saying her attorneys found “an insufficient factual and legal basis” to press a criminal misconduct case against Tam and that there wasn’t enough evidence to ask a grand jury to consider removing Tam from office.
What do you think? Should the city pursue legal action against Tam? Or should they let the matter rest with the district attorney’s decision?
