The former D.A. of San Francisco has literally been recalled. He claimed it was because of all the rich Republicans who, “…literally had us shadow boxing. “
Either his grammar was terrible or he was literally shadow boxing. My guess is he meant figuratively or possibly virtually shadow boxing. In any case, the Republicans had little or nothing to do with it. San Francisco literally, virtually, and figuratively have very little to say what happens in the bay city, or for that matter in the whole state.
My guess is his fifth grade English teacher is ashamed of him. Besides, shame on him for literally telling a lie.
