SAN FRANCISCO(AP) - A former San Francisco supervisor has
pleaded guilty to three felony charges related to an attempted shake-down of city business owners.
Ed Jew resigned from the city's Board of Supervisors in January after he was charged with demanding $80,000 from fast-food restaurant owners to help them resolve permit problems.
He pleaded guilty to fraud, bribery and extortion charges in federal court on Friday.
Jew has pleaded not guilty to separate state election fraud charges that he lied about living in San Francisco to qualify to represent the city's western neighborhoods.
