News Panel: The latest on Obama's budget proposal, Ross Mirkarimi, and more
President Obama holds high-priced private events in San Francisco on his whirlwind campaign fundraising tour through the state. Meanwhile, critics say his $3.8 trillion budget proposal, released earlier in the week, doesn't do enough to reduce the national deficit. Senate Republicans in Congress block passage of the Violence Against Women Act, while a local advocacy group for victims of domestic abuse takes aim at embattled San Francisco Sheriff Ross Mirkarimi with a billboard. Mirkarimi's trial for three misdemeanor charges related to domestic violence is set to start next week.
