This is what happens when the Democrats control a city -- any city -- for multiple decades. The end result will be more Detroits, Chicagos, Baltimores, etc. Or just look at Oakland.

This week, Mohammed Nuru, the Director of Public Works in San Francisco, was arrested and charged by the FBI on allegations of bribery, wire fraud, violations of honest service, and… porta potty contract corruption.Nuru calls himself @MrCleanSF on Twitter and is the official best known for failed efforts to keep feces and hypodermic needles out of the public way. He oversees a $500 million budget, and, according to our data displayed at OpentheBooks.com, Nuru earned a $250,548 annual salary in 2017. Apparently, that wasn’t enough in light of an arrest that included allegations of bribery.The indictment has yet to be proven in court. However, the feds, in part, referenced a porta potty scandal – a breach of honest services in the procurement of mobile potties and tiny container-type portable housing for the homeless.Nuru’s tactics were always questionable. For example, fancy portable toilettes were designed in the architectural style of “Painted Lady” residences. These porta-potties cost $200,000 each to operate. Five employees were staffed on a “poop patrol” with pay, perquisites, and pension benefits costing $184,000 each per year.
Why does the city need to pay $184,000 a yr for poop patrol employees?
