Chinese Sales Rep Accepts Bribes from Affordable Housing Applicants

Sing Tao Daily, Posted: Dec 05, 2009

SAN FRANCISCO-- Kan Chow, Chinese sales representative of San Francisco's affordable housing, is suspected of receiving bribes from Chinese applicants to ensure they get the housing units, reports the Sing Tao Daily. According to the paper, Chow was contracted to SF Redevelopment Agency and was responsible for outreaching to local Chinese community on affordable housing applications. It is suspected that Chow told applicants he could accept disqualified applications and place them in front to ensure they get selected in the first-come, first-serve process. In order to receive his assistance, Chow asked the applicants for $1,000 to start the process and another $1,000 after they get the units.

The SF district attorney's office is investigating the case, and Chow and his two assistants are prohibited from working on any of the applications. Involved units include those of Mission Walk, located in the Mission district, and those of Armstrong Townhomes, located in the Bayview district.
