I just love this story. You know a city has achieved corruption of epic proportion when a Las Vegan is impressed. Essentially, the entire city government of Bell, California was arrested today.
In a police sweep this morning, former Bell City Manager Robert Rizzo, whose exorbitant salary sparked the furor that led to the investigations of the city, was arrested, along with former Assistant City Manager Angela Spaccia.
The others included Mayor Oscar Hernandez, Vice Mayor Teresa Jacobo, council members George Mirabal and Luis Artiga, and former council members George Cole and Victor Bello.
Anybody watch that show “Weeds” on Showtime? Kind of reminds me of its fictional town Agrestic, California where Kevin Nealon leads a corrupt city council of pop smokers. Too funny.
