FACT: Multimillionaire Doug Chaffee took taxpayer money and used it to overcharge poor senior citizens.


In exchange for $1.7 million from the city of Fullerton, Chaffee promised to build affordable homes for local seniors, but instead, he overcharged them.

City of Fullerton officials concluded that Chaffee engaged in “an apparent pattern of charging rents in excess of amounts allowed under the OPA, a failure to provide accurate reporting as required by the OPA, and a deficiency in management oversight which could constitute ‘gross mismanagement’ of the project. …” The city also says that seniors living there were charged a utility allowance on top of the rent charge, which is prohibited.
