Bush's Name Could Grace Sewage Plant
San Francisco GOP Raises Stink, Plans To Fight Move
SAN FRANCISCO -- A San Francisco-based group is offering a plan to name a sewage treatment plant after President George W. Bush.
The Presidential Memorial Commission of San Francisco wants to rename the Oceanside Water Pollution Control Plant the George W. Bush Sewage Plant.
The commission calls it a tribute to the outgoing chief executive and the "mess" he'll leave behind.
Supporters are hoping to put the issue on the November ballot. They said they've turned in more than 10,000 signatures to San Francisco election officials.
Opponents think the plan reeks. The city's Republican Party chairman has promised a fight if the measure makes the ballot.
A call to White House press officials was not returned.
