Corruption hits again in local government!
Corruption...this is not the norm but the exception in local government. Unfortunately stories like these must be brought out to light to show all of us that this type of activity is not only illegal but will not be tolerated.
In Los Angeles, the previous Los Angeles County Assessor, John Noguez, once a rising Latino elected official, has been indicted by the Los Angeles District Attorney of multiple counts of bribery and using his office to lower property taxes to campaign contributors.
Here is the full story from the Los Angeles Times:
