Scott Haggerty Accused of Public Corruption
Original post made by Corruption, Another Pleasanton neighborhood, on May 8, 2013
Among the allegations:
-- "misuse of his position to extort personal, interest-free loans," from him and from others, "including individuals who engaged in business dealings with the county."
--"misuse of his public position to receive kickbacks and benefits," including abusing his office "to enhance his profits on the sales, purchases and leases of his homes."
-- regarding Staples Ranch -- "in some land purchases, Wong has agreed to purchase county property directly through Mr. Haggerty, with Mr. Haggerty controlling the entire negotiation independent of any other county authority. Having engaged in multiple deals with Wong, Mr. Haggerty requested Mr. Wong return the favor when he needed to sell his personal residence but was unable to sell it in the time frame or price range he desired. Upon Mr. Haggerty's request and insistence, Mr. Wong purchased Mr. Haggerty's personal residence immediately at Mr. Haggerty's asking price, despite this price failing to attract any independent purchasers."
--He claims Haggerty Other used his position as county supervisor to extort a $25,000 donation from Chevron to the Livermore Film Commission," on which Haggerty was a board member.
