Gavin Newsom Under Fire For Not Releasing His Personal iPhone

Gavin Clings to His iPhone (I Totally Understand)

Oh, Gavin! San Franciscans and San Franciscans at heart know Mayor Gavin Newsom for his dreaminess, his uh, "troubled" love life, and I know him for his devotion to his iPhone. Now, he's got a little bit more than his contacts, emails, and touchscreen to cling to.

After last year's Cosco Busan oil spill in the Bay, Newsom went on vacation and communicated with his staff on his phone. The mayor has refused to hand over any info communicated about the spill, because it's on his own personal phone (which he pays for himself and uses for personal and work). To find out what the critics say and see what I think about the ordeal,

The critics are saying Newsom should release any pertinent info. I'm kind of on Gavin's side here, since the Examiner's article doesn't seem to imply that there's any additional information needed, and since it's his phone. I totally feel the "get your hands off my iPhone" vibe. But then again, I'm pretty sensitive about my privacy these days. What's also funny about the article is how they mainly refer to it as Gavin's iPhone, not phone or cell phone. Would they do that for another handset?

If they're conducting a criminal investigation, let them get a warrant. No one is obligate to give up information without one.
