Via Valleywag, "S.F. mayor's friendship with Google founders" from the San Francisco Chronicle looks at questions of propriety over San Francisco mayor Gavin Newsom accepting rides on a private jet with Google's cofounders along with campaign contributions he's received from individual Googlers and "hang out" time with Larry Page. Nothing illegal is said to have happened, but with Google now pitching to win a contract to give San Francisco wifi, there are concerns the Chronicle says about relationships being too "chummy."
