Does Chinese New Year Parade “Organizer” Rose Pak Take Ten Percent Off the Top from Corporate Sponsors?

I don’t know.

I mean, her luxury condo south of Market was only partly┬ásubsidized, right? And she doesn’t really have a job job. And I don’t think the Chinese consulate has ever 1099′ed her for the “consulting” work she does / did for it.

So lookie here to see what those gambling houses in Reno and Las Vegas have to pay to participate in the 2013 event:

So Rose Pak is a guaranteed winner and the “Chinese community” she claims to represent is a guaranteed loser, assuming that advertising works and assuming that The House Always Wins, which is does.

Couldn’t somebody else “organize” this parade?

And maybe not do the drunk mafia grandma routine every year?

    As the only gadfly in this town consistently keeping tabs on our very own Ching Shih, I sometimes fear for your health, San Francisco Citizen.

    Thank you for doing the job other “journalists” won’t.

    SFC: I agree with WdG’s statement. Nobody else has the pantalones to throw this one to the masses. I respect that.
