I'm glad Councilmember Linda Maio agrees that Lau's resignation from the Zoning Adjustment Board is appropriate, given his gross indiscretions.  

But logic would dictate that his partner, Nicole Drake, should also withdraw from her position on the Rent Stabilization Board, and that both Lau and Drake should resign their council aide positions, having violated the code of ethics and lost any possible credibility as honest employees. Unless, of course, corruption of this order is simply the wallpaper in Berkeley. 

My hat is off to the online Berkeley Daily Planet and to Fred Dodsworth for their intrepid and courageous reporting.
