The deadline has been extended for San Francisco Supervisor Ed
Jew to hand over documents proving his primary residence is in
the district he represents, a spokeswoman for the city attorney's
office said yesterday.
Jew, who represents District 4, will have until June 8 to submit
a copy of his 2006 federal and state tax returns, driver's license,
vehicle registration and utility bills from 2450 28th Ave. in
San Francisco to City Attorney Dennis Herrera, said Herrera's
spokeswoman Alexis Truchan.
The supervisor is the target of both an FBI investigation into
possible illegal payouts and a city probe into his residence.
Herrera originally requested the documents by Tuesday. However,
Jew requested an extension as he left on a preplanned
trip to China on Wednesday, the same day Herrera made the
Jew's attorney, Steven Gruel, said his client purchased his plane
ticket May 1, nearly three weeks before the FBI served search
warrants on his properties.
Jew is scheduled to return to the Bay Area on June 4, Gruel said.
