About This Item

San Francisco: Coming Up!, 1992. Newspaper. 60p. tabloid newspaper with cover photo with the head of SF police chief Richard Hongisto on a police uniform, with his billy club in a most suggestive pose (collaged of course; body was posed for by a uniformed lesbian lady, so runs the knowledgable allegation) mild toning and wear otherwise very good on newsprint. This cover led directly to Hongisto's firing as police chief: he ordered his men to pull copies of the Bay Times from its street boxes and destroy them. Hongisto has always had a schizoid relationship with SF progressives and minority communities: his reputation as a liberal sheriff in the 1970s was shattered when he evicted aging Filipino Americans from the International Hotel. He left the city for Cleveland and for the job of warden at Sing Sing, then returned to run for supervisor and assessor as a liberal. After conservative mayor Frank Jordan - a former police chief - tabbed him for the chief's job, he carried out a number of overkill actions against various demonstrations, leading to this famous cover.
