>> we are about to witness the biggest fumble in the history of progressive politics in san francisco. >> the san francisco supervisor chris daley lost it when bevin did you have would vote for evan leigh getting the 6th vote he would need. he lashed out at the board president. >> i will haunt you. i will politically haunt you for the biggest fumble in the history of san francisco politics. it's on like donkey kong. >> and he taunted mikhail law opeere when she commended the pick.

supervisors which will be sworn in on saturday. so the drama continues down here. still no interim mayor in san francisco. live at city hall, amy hollyfield, abc7 news. >> okay, amy, thanks. the oakland raiders have unplugged tom cable. >> yeah, tonight al davis fired his head coach. sports director larry beil is here with the story. >> i'm thinking chris daley, maybe if he knows anything about football. the raiders made a bold move with owner al davis dumping tom cable despite the fact many wanted him to return. he took over two and a half years ago. he endured ups and downs and an assault claim from one of his assistance. but cable took a franchise in complete disarray and brought stability and respect ability and lead them to an 8 and 8 record. they decided not to exercise a two-year $5 million option and that clears the way for davis to promote off fen 7 coordinator hugh -- offensive
coordinator hugh jackson. the prevailing sentiment all along was davis believes this year's success was more attributed to jackson than cable. by coincidence, the 49ers got permission to interview hugh jackson and maybe that's what prompted al to pull the trigger on cable. here is what was said yesterday. >> that would be a shame. i seriously it would set us back again. i can't go through another head coach. i just can't. they all come in here and say the same thing. i will do this. no, you are not. i would rather deal with the guy who is here. >> one thing to consider is al davis has a good relationship with jim harbaugh, but that is probably too pricey for davis. the niners hired a gm and will now make a full court press for jim harbough. more in sports. >> thanks, larry. cell phone video taken

transgender judge was sworn in oakland as a superior court judge. >> if i can be a role model and an example for people who feel they have been left out or excluded, that's great. >> she says being transgender was mostly a nonissue during her campaign for the bench. since the election she received support from around the world along with some hate mail. >> it is good for the history books, and it is very important for the lgbt community and for the transgender unit commo in particular. but ultimately the thing that is most important and the thing i want to be remembered most for is what i do on the bench. >> the judge will preside over criminal cases at the courthouse in oakland. pg&e says it will honor a year long moratorium on installing smart meters in unincorporated marin county. they stood and cheered after the board approved the moratorium. today's vote follows weeks of protests. last week two women were arrested after they tried to
