11/23/04: Supervisor Michela Alioto-Pier presses her agenda that Daly should apologize not only to her but to the public. Board President Matt Gonzalez immediately called for a vote. Gonzalez said later that Alioto-Pier had attempted to "dictate the terms" of Daly's apology, which Daly had made and Alioto-Pier accepted earlier in the session. The censure motion was defeated, 8-2.

Chris Daly is an advocate for housing and
the homeless and is the youngest member of the Board of Supervisors. He
was born in the 1970s - when many of us were already wearing ugly clothes!
Daly made headlines for allegedly shoving Mayor Willie Brown, announcing
that he didn't "feel the love" at City Hall, getting arrested at a housing
demonstration, using the power of acting mayor to appoint two key commisioners
while Brown was out of town, and for holding up a Board meeting for 20 minutes
by sulking and refusing to vote - all in separate incidents. Everyone seems
to have an opinion about Daly. Whether he's an activist for the disenfranchised
or just an infantile dilettant is your call. (Mister SF not only feels
the love, he thinks it's important to have activist energy in the halls

Alioto-Pier unsuccessfully sought to censure Daly for aggressive behavior including Daly's telling a lobbyist to "f-off" at a public meeting..." from Heart of the City 12/07/04
