The immigrant who became the ‘doughnut king’ had wealth and clout – and a nasty gambling habit. Now he sleeps on a trailer porch.
On the porch of a friend’s mobile home in Long Beach, the Cambodian doughnut king falls asleep each night shivering.
Once, he enjoyed the warmth of family and the respect of his community. Once, he was a poor boy who carried away one of Cambodia’s wealthiest daughters. Once, he was a millionaire who met three U.S. presidents.
