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

Leon Chow channels Pinocchio
‘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.

Stay tuned!
