The Keith Jackson Saga

Former San Francisco school board president, Keith Jackson, in 2014 pleaded guilty to federal charges of racketeering and corruption, gun-running, and conspiracy to commit murder for hire. Yesterday, Jackson was additionally hit with four counts of bribery, money-laundering, and grand theft of public money.

In 2007, Jackson — a consultant hired by New College of California president Martin Hamilton — threatened former San Francisco Supervisor Harry Britt, when Britt called for a criminal investigation of the New College board of trustees. As editor of the New College independent alumni association website, I immediately phoned the San Francisco District Attorney’s office.

Soon after, I published an account of the incident, and sent word to Jackson he was being watched.
