State Sen. Leland Yee whistleblower in Jew case
January 14, 2008 3:05 PM
In a press release on Monday, State Senator Leland Yee (D- San Francisco/San Mateo County) revealed he received information regarding the former San Francisco Supervisor Ed Jew, that Jew was attempting to extort funds from the Quickly tapioca owners.
"As a Senator sworn to uphold the Constitution and as someone who has dedicated my career in public service to protecting the interests of our residents, I have the legal and moral responsibility to pass such information on to the proper authorities," said Yee.
Jew recently resigned from the San Francisco Board of Supervisors last week and in return, he will not face ethical and civil act charges.
Carmen Chu is the official replacement for District 4 as she was sworn in last week on Friday by Mayor Newsom.
