Oakland City Councilman Ignacio De La Fuente said Thursday that he intends to seek a no-confidence vote in Mayor Jean Quan for her handling of the Occupy Oakland camp.
The vote would be largely symbolic, but De La Fuente said it was one of the few ways the council could apply pressure on Quan.
"She has screwed up this situation so bad, the city is suffering the consequences," said De La Fuente, Quan's most frequent critic on the council. "There is no confidence in this mayor to take action, because she can't."
De La Fuente said he had wanted a vote to be held Tuesday, the council's last scheduled meeting of November. But the matter must first be scheduled by the council's Rules Committee, whose meeting Thursday was canceled because it was a city furlough day.

Typically weak Kalifornia bs...we can’t do anything because it would hurt Oakland’s image...really. Oakland has been a government run slum for 30 years. What image is left to be hurt.
For some reason, this reminds me of the words of Minoru Yamasaki, the architect of the Pruitt-Igoe housing project in St. Louis. Those housing structures were inexorably turned into ruins by their occupants; when asked to comment, Yamasaki lamented "I never thought people were that destructive."
Don't know why that came to mind, except perhaps that Yamasaki is of Oriental descent, like Mayor Quan.
Riddle this...When an hispanic male confronts an asian female is that considered racist or sexist? Just trying to apply rationale like a leftist would do...
Get real. How could anyone possibly hurt the city’s well deserved reputation for being a failure just one step up from Detroit!
“She has screwed up this situation so bad, the city is suffering the consequences,”
She has had a lot of help from the citizens of Oakland. They are trying to out Detroit, Detroit.
Liberals. Everything they touch turns to crap.
a city furlough day
got in the way
we’ll ditch her Tomorrow
Whoever is less of a commie is a hater. That's the only rule you'll ever need.
