DA Jenkins pocketed six figures as a consultant for a nonprofit linked to Boudin recall backers.

Brooke Jenkins didn’t just quit her job as a local prosecutor to volunteer for the recall against her former boss Chesa Boudin.

Newly filed ethics records show she also raked in more than $100,000 as a consultant for Neighbors for a Better San Francisco, a nonprofit that shares an address and virtually the same name as the organization behind the district attorney’s recall but is legally a separate entity. A board member for both groups was also one of the biggest funders supporting the recall.

This marks the first time Jenkins publicly disclosed the earnings from Neighbors for a Better San Francisco.
