Fantastic news today as District Attorney Steve Cooley sweeps in and arrests most of those involved in the payroll scandal in the City of Bell. Former City Manager Robert Rizzo faces 53 charges.
(Also a great idea for those Council Members to be in custody for their own safety. The latest public meetings in Bell were turning into ugly lynch-mob mentality free-for-alls.)
I am ecstatic because I called for Cooley to take these specific actions in my blog post of August 9th, 2010:
Cooley can now present himself to voters as the "top dog" of law enforcement in California.
A crime-buster who will go after entitled bureaucrats who steal from taxpayers. What is not to love there?
Cooley will trounce San Francisco District Attorney Kamala Harris in the election in November.
Congratulations to the new Attorney General of California : Steve Cooley!
