Resigned Newsom staffer gives cash to Maldonado

Which former Mayor Gavin Newsom staffer plunked $500 into the campaign coffers of lieutenant governor rival Abel Maldonado?

We’ll give you a hint. He’s a Republican and former U.S. Attorney who resigned from the administration last year.

That’s right, Kevin Ryan, the former head of the Mayor’s Office of Criminal Justice, wrote two $250 checks to Maldonado’s campaign in September, according to the latest filings. As far as we could tell, Ryan didn’t return the favor to Newsom.

At least he didn’t show up at Maldonado’s campaign event outside City Hall on Wednesday.
