Hahn campaign asks Newsom’s office for drug lab documents 

Janice Hahn’s campaign is going after Gavin — again. The campaign on Friday hand-delivered a request to Mayor Gavin Newsom’s office asking it to disclose the 2004 report that “flagged” The City’s crime lab as problematic, according to the campaign.

It doesn’t stop there.

Michael Trujillo, Hahn’s campaign manager, is also asking for any e-mails from or to any employee in Newsom’s office from Jan. 1, 2004 to the present, which include the name “Deborah Madden” anywhere in the text or subject line of the e-mail message; and internal memos from the Office of the Mayor, from 2004 to the present, which include the name “Deborah Madden.”

Newsom’s office sent a letter to Trujillo informing the campaign that it will need some extra time to sift through the requested documents.

“He has asked us to review thousands of e-mails and documents going back years and that will take some time,” said Tony Winnicker, Newsom’s spokesman. “We will certainly comply with the letter and spirit of the Sunshine Ordinance.”
