From the declaration of Special Agent Emmanuel Pascua in support of indicting State Senator Leland Yee, former gangster Raymond “Shrimp Boy” Chow, and ex-S.F. school board member Keith Jackson, amongst others:
“…Chow and the [undercover employee] talked about the corrupt nature of politics in San Francisco. Chow commented how San Francisco has changed over the years. While the city itself looks clean, Chow believed San Francisco was dirtier because of public corruption.”
According to the declaration, Jackson first connected with Chow while trying to garner support for “the development of Bayview/Hunters Point.” Jackson was engaged by Lennar Corp to help secure the approval for their plans to develop Candlestick and Hunters Point.
