To the surprise of few, yet another official in feces-ridden San Francisco has been arrested as part of an FBI investigation. The man who’s in charge of cleaning up the feces who’s in jail. Mohammed Nuru *was* San Francisco’s “Director of Public Works.”

The FBI hauled him in on bribery and wire fraud charges. They also picked up restaurateur Nick Bovis as part of the scheme.

SF Gate reports:

“San Francisco’s Director of Public Works Mohammed Nuru, 58, and Lefty O’Doul’s owner Nick Bovis, 57, were charged in a criminal complaint with honest services wire fraud in connection with an alleged scheme to attempt to bribe a San Francisco Airport Commissioner, United States Attorney David Anderson announced at a press conference.

“The complaint describes a web of corruption involving bribery, kickbacks, and side deals by one of San Francisco’s highest-ranking city employees,” Anderson said in a statement. “The public is entitled to honest work from public officials, free from manipulation for the official’s own personal benefit and profit.”

The defendants both appeared in federal court today and were arraigned and released, each on a $2 million bond. If convicted, they face a maximum statutory sentence of 20 years in prison.

Nuru was initially arrested on this charge on Jan. 21, and said he would cooperate with FBI officials and agreed to not tamper with or disclose the investigation. He was arrested again yesterday for violating those terms.

The main scheme described by the FBI involves the attempted alleged bribery of an unnamed SFO commissioner in exchange for a restaurant contract at the airport. According to the complaint, Nuru and Bovis schemed to give the unnamed commissioner $5,000 and free travel so that she would vote to approve a contract for Bovis’ restaurant Spinnerie. The complaint records multiple conversations between Bovis and an undercover FBI employee who was posing as a friend of a lender. The criminal complaint against Nuru states the unnamed commissioner declined the money, and the contract was never awarded to Bovis.

That’s right, they were duped by an undercover agent. It’s almost like a skit out of a bad comedy show.

“There is at least one indication Bovis was getting suspicious of this “friend.”

“Well, in my brain, what if this is some sort of FBI sting or something?” Bovis reportedly said to the undercover FBI employee.

They ended up with a 79 page criminal complaint, available on the SF Gate article. And oh yeah, dude is a Muslim too.

Ironically, Nuru’s handle on Twitter is (WAS) Mr Clean SF. Here was his last tweet:
