Sen. Feinstein Rips Up Public Garden
The American Thinker ^ | 5/28/2006 | CAWats

Posted on 05/28/2006 3:49:25 PM PDT by CAWats

It must be tough keeping track of all the workmen doing your chores when you have as many multi-million dollar mansions as Senator Dianne Feinstein and her fabulously wealthy husband Richard Blum. The latest addition to the property collection is a 16 million dollar house in San Francisco, located adjacent to a public right-of-way along steps run up a hill.

The workmen doing the gardening and renovation on the njew digs ripped up an entire formal garden located on public land.

If it sounds like her crew went too far in digging up a public space, we should point out there is some ambiguity—because the landscaping around the Lyon Street steps is supposed to be maintained by the neighbors, in this case Feinstein and her husband.

And the couple were actually working up plans to give the area a total makeover—including putting up a gate and fence around the Lyon Street entrance.

“Some security is obviously important, and yet we want to do it in a way that it doesn’t take away” from the public space, Feinstein said.

“We will pay the city to do the work,” she said. “I regret (the garden) was taken out before we were ready to go in with the new stuff.

Then give the public their land back.
Gawd, democrats are stupid people.

Feinstein proves once again that she is a hypocritical arrogant snot. With tons of money.

As in filthy capitalist dollars? I thought progressives never touch the stuff.

That is one ugly looking house. Do you think we can talk Senator into putting a lawn jockey on the front lawn? OK, just kidding.
Now the formal garden looked nice. The house looks so...well pedestrian! LOL!

She probably dug it up because the 9th Circuit ruled that the garden did not give equal soil access to weeds (sorry, "minority wildflowers") and invasives (sorry, "undocumented perennials")

Why is she above the law and even judges are not?

City Attorney Tom Carr and Ken Bounds, the head of Seattle Parks and Recreation, told The Seattle Times that Judge J. Farris paid $500,000, plus interest, he owed for the damage done in the park in 2002. Farris is a judge on the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.

Yes, I know, it was a joke. His and Patty Duke's son Sean did such a good character role on 24 this season as well.
Not sure is he has retired. I see Patty Duke doing suff that the wife watches on O network and Hallmark.

I would like the name of "one" senator who is not an arrogant snot! You will note their God like attitude. Get out of my sight God!

You want to know why the congress has their tits in a ringer over this Jefferson bribery deal? Every arrogant one of them are guilty and probably all have disastrous files in their office.

What does McCain and Kennedy see out of wholesale immigration? Free votes fome stupid people. What is the figure? 80% crossing do not have a high school diploma.

Wow this is really high tech stuff coming in from Mexico.
