The San Francisco Public Works Director Mohammed Nuru has been arrested for public corruption.

Apparently he was in league with a local businessman and were accepting bribes for airport concession contracts !!

No surprise as this fella has a history of "suspicious" actions for 20 years 😆

Mr Nuru is the one who has been in charge of the failed efforts to clean up the San Fran homeless and public feces problems !! 😆

Looks like Nuru and his pals are in deep feces themselves !! 😆

Rumors claim Nuru has accused investigators of "needling" him 😎



San Francisco official in charge of cleaning up city's filthy streets arrested

The head of San Francisco Public Works, which is in charge of cleaning up the city’s feces-filled streets, has been arrested by the FBI on suspicion of public corruption.

San Francisco Public Works Director Mohammed Nuru was arrested Monday alongside Nick Bovis, the owner of a popular sports bar in Fisherman’s Wharf, Lefty O-Doul’s. Sources told NBC Bay Area that Nuru was arrested on suspicion of accepting bribes for airport concession contracts.


Both Nuru and Bovis were released on bond following their arrest.

As the top official in charge of the $312 million city public works budget since 2012, Nuru was tasked with cleaning up San Francisco streets, which critics note remain cluttered with feces, trash and used needles amid a homelessness crisis.

There will be more arrest. It goes way beyond fraud city contracts. Bovis was getting lots of perks. One was a John Deere tractor for his vacation home. It takes a lot of people to pull off this level of corruption.

Oh my...it would be only too fitting to see corruption like this continue to unravel in the current administration.

Can you imagine the corruption free for all that would of ensued had Clinton taken the win?

Good on the FBI, nothing but recent stories of them getting tough on corruption, like Omar marrying her brother.

So this nobody gets arrested by the FBI yet Hillary walks free even though we all know she's dirtier than the ground outside?

What a hollow meaningless victory...

I won't take it seriously till we see the real criminals being arrested.

Well unfortunately the establishment and current paradigm don't seem to care on prosecuting here.

I think once the current crop of congressfolk are cycled out, via old age, retirement, crime and or death, newer faces may hold everyone accountable regardless of political tier.

There is so much corruption in government offices.
The problem is that it's hard to check everyone's work. Tons of money with easy access is a tempting thing.
Can you imagine how many are not being caught?

Lots of businesses run this way too.
I remember our local newspaper company caught a lady that had embezzled over $100k.
It amazed me how she got away with it for several years without an accountant noticing.

The problem is that government bureaucracy provides access to lucrative markets. The government employees often have a lot of power to dole out the contracts / permits, etc and it puts them in a position to extort the business.

Here in Chicago, we had an Alderman (City Council member) get busted by the Feds last year. The Alderman basically control a lot of the permitting and approvals for new businesses in their neighborhood ward. This Alderman tried to shake down a Burger King franchisee. Basically, would't approve the permits unless they agreed to do business with the Alderman's firm. After permit was approved, the BK Franchise didn't do business with them and the Alderman tried to have their permits pulled.

The less power you give to government bureaucracy, the better. This is why it always amuses me to see so many people wanting government to have more power.

if convicted he should be sentenced to personally by hand clean up the streets
gloves and bags of course
bet he would learn his lesson

He might also sit on a stool, and sing a little song.
