SF Chronicle: SF @MayorEdLee in hot water with Obama over heckler

President Obama heckled in San Francisco ChinatownPresident Barack Obama may be still steaming over a heckler who was able to get a prime location right behind the President during his appearance Monday in San Francisco Chinatown.
Former San Francisco Mayor Willie Brown in his column in the SF Chronicle wrote the Obama staff is upset over the vetting that allowed the heckler so close.
The area right behind the President where the heckler was is ordinarily reserved for the President’s strongest and most enthusiastic supporters.

That wasn’t the case Monday when Ju Hong, an undocumented immigrant from South Korea who came to the US 13 years ago, began loudly scolding the President for not using his executive powers to stop deportations.
“This is very urgent and this was the only venue where I could speak out and I’m representing the voices of other undocumented students who are actually in detention centers right now who could not be here,” Hong is quoted as saying by KGO-TV.
