    LOS ANGELES — The mayor and former city manager of Bell were led away in handcuffs Tuesday, charged with six other officials with taking more than $5.5 million from the working-class suburb in a scandal that triggered nationwide outrage and calls for more transparency in government.
    Former City Manager Robert Rizzo, Mayor Oscar Hernandez and the other current and former city officials were rounded up during morning raids on their homes that prompted many of their neighbors to burst into cheers.

    They were charged with dozens of counts of illegally paying themselves huge salaries in what District Attorney Steve Cooley called a case of "corruption on steroids."

    The article doesn't mention who originally outed these people.

    Where's Monk when you need him?

    Now if we can just rid ourselves of these other career crony corrupt democrats. Democrats will seek out the most power hungry greedy communist nepotistic scum available & vote them into office. In Missouri they voted in a dead man Mel Carnahan for senator & had his wife Jean Carnahan take his senate seat, Now democrats have voted 2 of his children into office. Russ Carnahan is their US House rep & Robin Carnahan Secretary of State. Now his daughter Robin Carnahan just won their primary for US Senate & Obama has been campaigning for her. Robin & Russ Carnahan also have another brother Tom Carnahan who just got $90 Million from the Stimulus Bill that his brother Russ voted into law. Crony Corruption & Nepotism is the Democratic Campaign Motto!!!

    Zowie. That is some amazing corruption. At least here in Cleveland they take normal salaries and then extort bribes and kickbacks.

    Let this be just the beginning!!!
    Where did they learn this looting???
    Wall Street
    Where a CEO gets millions annually for going to meetings and letting the board members stroke him. He gives the board memebers hundreds of thousands of dollars for part time jobs as meeting attenders.
    let more corrupt city officials go down, then find a prosecuter in NY with a pair.

    If your dumb ass doesn't recognize the difference between what a private business does and what a city government does, you have issues.

    Hint: You have issues.

    I wouldn't expect a below average history major and current narc to understand high finance and boardroom procedures. You've got 100 times the issues I have cornNarc

    Stupid childish insults about intelligence and education from you mean less than nothing. You have yet to write a post which makes sense.

    high finance and board room procedures? What the fuck does that have to do with the fact that a private corporation is free to pay it's employees, including executives and board members whatever they would like , unlike a government who is supposedly accountable to the taxpayers?
