SEIU corporate whore and "take more concessions" UHW President Dave Regan wants more pro-capitalist politicians in San Francisco and is in an alliance with the bosses associations including the Building Owners Association, Hotel Bosses and Hospital Bosses. He has never seen a boss and billionaire that he wants to partner with. His puppet Leon Chow is his agent running for Supervisor.

SEIU-UHW's Leon Chow SF in Media Spotlight... Soon!

Sources tell Tasty that a journalist has uncovered some revealing information about Leon Chow that promises to spark controvery in San Francisco's political world. Tasty hears an article containing the journalist's findings will be published in the next 24 hours.

Leon Chow is a top official at SEIU-UHW who's attempting to unseat John Avalos, one of the most progressive members of San Francisco's Board of Supervisors. Chow's campaign -- which is being bankrolled by downtown business interests and SEIU-UHW -- is reportedly a central part of a strategy by Dave Regan and his business allies to dramatically alter the balance of power on San Francisco's Board of Supervisors by unseating progressives and replacing them with business-backed candidates.

As readers might imagine, Chow's candidacy has already sparked tons of controversy in San Francisco... and even inside SEIU. Tasty earlier reported on this internal email authored by officials at SEIU Local 1021, including former S.F. Supervisor Chris Daly. Local 1021 represents thousands of San Francisco's public employees. In the email, circulated last month, officials at Local 1021 described the harmful role that SEIU-UHW is playing in San Francisco's politics:
UHW’s political alliance with San Francisco business interests through the Alliance for Jobs has not just been an issue for Labor, it has been a problem for the entire progressive community. Since UHW’s trusteeship, victories for progressives in San Francisco have been few and far between. We don’t think that this timing is a coincidence. With Labor united, we face a very tough fight against downtown interests. With the City’s largest local on the other side, we stand hardly a chance.
Of course, Chow's business-funded campaign to unseat Sup. John Avalos is just the latest effort by the unholy alliance between SEIU-UHW's Dave Regan and his Big Business buddies. Fortunately, Tasty hears that a journalist has uncovered revealing details about Chow. Stay tuned! If Tasty's sources are right, the story should hit the streets in the next 24 hours.

Corrupt SEIU UHW Thug president Dave Regan's candidate Leon Chow who was the political director has apparently exposed for running for SF supervisor while a resident outside of San Francisco.

Leon Chow: "I Was Homeless while Earning Six Figures"

Leon Chow channels Pinocchiuo
‘I was basically homeless.’

That, according to SEIU-UHW’s Leon Chow, is the reason why he apparently committed felony violations of voting laws described in yesterday’s edition of the San Francisco Appeal.


Gimme a break! Unless, of course, Chow happens to be the first person in recorded history to be “homeless” while simultaneously earning more than $100,000 a year!

It turns out that from 2006 to 2011, Chow was paid an average of $108,000 a year by SEIU-UHW, according to union records filed with the US Department of Labor. In fact, here’s what Leon “I’m Homeless” Chow pocketed in 2011: $111,179. (Click on the image below to enlarge it.)

And that’s not all. It turns out that Chow -- who's a member of SEIU-UHW's Executive Committee -- was somehow “homelessness” at the same time that he owned a condominium in Walnut Creek! Quite a trick, huh?

Hey Leon... Tasty has a humble suggestion: Before making pathetically dishonest claims about your deprived existence, you might wanna spend some time reviewing the paychecks of the homecare workers whom you’re supposed to represent. Many of these workers earn less than $15,000 a year and have none of the Cadillac benefits that you enjoy.

So what’s next for Leon?

Well, Chow may not be “homeless,” but he’s definitely been afflicted by the same foot-in-mouth disease that’s famously infected SEIU’s Dave Regan. We can all look forward to additional faceplants by Leon in the days ahead… especially when he undergoes questioning by the District Attorney and the Secretary of State’s Election Fraud Investigation Unit.

Chow who is an alliance with the bosses in San Francisco and the puppet of SEIU UHW thug president Dave Regan was apparently coached to run for office as a SF supervisor by Regan despite the fact that he does not live in San Francisco.
SEIU UHW members were left out of the loop of course on all these shenanigans.
