How Many Laws Can One Councilman Break?

Embattled Emeryville City Councilman Ken Bukowski is being investigated by the city’s police department for receiving nearly $100,000 in loans from local businesses in possible violation of the law, according to the Trib. In addition, the Chron reports today that Bukowski has been maintaining a second residence in San Francisco for years, raising questions as to whether he actually lives in Emeryville as required under state election law. The Chron story also points out that Bukowski has been receiving a huge break on his rent for his Nob Hill apartment under San Francisco rent control laws that are supposed to apply only to people who actually live in San Francisco.
