Obviously the allegations in SF Weekly that Julian Davis groped a woman are serious stuff. For the record, nobody at the Guardian knew anything about this; we didn’t know anything even remotely close. The worst we’d ever heard about Julian was that he was kind of an entitled jerk in his 20s who thought he was God’s gift to women and sometimes came on a little strong. Groping? This is very serious business. Yes, we are reconsidering our endorsement. Yes, we take this about as seriously as you can take anything.
We of course have to talk to all sides, but we’ll be making a recommendation by tomorrow.
