Now comes word that Alex Tourk has resigned as the campaign manager for Newsom's reelection. For "personal reasons." Yeah right. Does this have something to do with Newsom standing by Ragone, again, just as he did when he let his old chief of staff Steve Kawa resign after a power struggle with Ragone? Or was it something that happened while Newsom was in the Swiss Alps? Or maybe it was actually "personal reasons" associated with some nasty and persistent rumors that have floated through City Hall? Who knows? Whatever it was, we'll all probably have to find out for ourselves rather than count on Newsom's people for the straight scoop.
