At today's Board of Supervisors meeting, there was a conspicuously empty chair — Efren Carrillo's.
Supervisor David Rabbitt wasted no time in addressing the elephant in the room by being first to condemn Carrillo's behavior that led to the young supervisor being arrested at 3:40 in the morning for trying to break into a woman's bedroom in his socks and underwear.
In the ten minutes the followed, all four supervisors expressed unequivocal empathy for the victim, which, it must be said, is a refreshing change from the spin being peddled by Carrillo's supporters and attorneys. Susan Gorin even discussed the possibility of Carrillo's removal from the Board.
Rabbitt seems to be the one who arranged and led this discussion, and for that, we give kudos to him.
