I was just reminded of another antic pulled by Feinstein in the 1980s when she was mayor of San Francisco. It was during the Nightstalker investigation. The police knew the criminal used the same shoes in every assault and probably considered then his "Lucky" shoes. The police had been keeping that secret, so they could use it in the prosecution of the criminal when caught. The cops, however, made the mistake of telling Dianne Feinstein, and she released the information to the media without consulting the police. They eventually caught the perpetrator, but the shoes were never found--he discarded them when Feinstein's news reached the media. Although a smart person, she is devious, self-centered and very arrogant.
