Ammiano's offical Assembly page: http://democrats.assembly.ca.gov/members/a17/

October 12, 2009: Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger vetoed Ammiano's AB 1176 concerned with financing of infrastructure projects at San Francisco's ports. On Oct. 27th the editor of the San Francisco Bay Guardian wrote about his observation of a hidden expletive phrase in the governor's veto message: "F#@k You." The governor's staffers dismissed the acrostic as coincidental but previous animosity between Ammiano and the governor (see Oct. 7, 2009, below) suggested a possibility that it was purposeful. The story was quickly circulated in national news outlets.
