Two former San Francisco officials indicted city hall corruption scandal

-

Three more people — two of them former city officials — have been charged in a San Francisco corruption case centering around former public works director Mohammed Nuru, federal prosecutors announced Monday.

Nuru’s longtime girlfriend, Sandra Zuniga, is charged with conspiring for years to help Nuru launder money from various illegal schemes while she headed a city fix-it team and was director of the Mayor’s Office of Neighborhood Services, according to a statement from the U.S. attorney’s office.

Also charged are Balmore Hernandez, a former public works employee who heads a construction engineering firm, and Florence Kong, who owns a San Francisco construction company and a construction debris recycling firm, authorities said.

It wasn’t immediately known whether the three had attorneys who could speak for them.
