The San Francisco Chronicle reports on the extortionist and anti-growth policy known as "discretionary review":
"San Francisco is the only large city in the state that has discretionary review," Planning Director John Rahaim said.
"There has been more than one instance we've heard of where it has been used by neighbors to get money from a person or project sponsor," Rahaim said. " 'Give me $20,000, and I won't file a DR' kind of thing."Truly, only in San Francisco.
