The more I read these editorials describing how Agran is the most corrupt politician in OC history, the more I realize that Moxley simply hates the guy for some undiscovered reason.
Politicians go down for violating ethics rules fairly often. Maybe the reason Kamala Harris or any other AG has never gone after him is that there's no evidence.
@_Damon You are a liar and that is probably why you hide behind a fake name. Larry Agran is a pathetic political figure who chose corruption over honesty. That is his shameful legacy. Whine all you want. The voters of Irvine seemed to have agreed with me.
@rscottmoxley WOW. I didn't expect such an inflammatory response from a real journalist.
I'm not sure what you think I'm lying about, but, you can't deny that you dislike Agran. You've regularly accuse him of things like being the "conniving boss of a tainted machine," for decades, floating theories of nefarious plots, and yet no evidence has ever been uncovered and no charges brought.
Many other politicians have been brought down for corruption during Agran's career, yet you maintain the laser focus on him. It seems illogical to believe somebody who has never had an office higher than mayor could have so much clout that despite all his supposed crimes, he can hide the evidence or suppress an investigation against him.
As a lawyer friend of mine put it, "when politicians are corrupt, they are usually obviously corrupt."
P.S: My real name is Damon, and I live in Santa Ana, thankyouverymuch.
Damon, ask yourself the question, "With all the allegations and misappropriations of hundreds of millions of dollars, no bid contracts and a million dollars in contributions poured into Agran's money laundering campaign fund, why has there never been an investigation?" Moxley hit the nail on the head with the District Attorney and his friendship with Forde & Moolrich, Agran's political consultants. For the same reason the District Attorney refused to investigate the Obstruction of Justice allegation of Larry Agran a few years ago, when a package of facts and documents were presented to his Special Investigation Unit. Don't know why the United States Attorney hasn't moved to do an investigation on Agran over the years, but it wasn't for a lack of us trying to get it done. You get evidence by doing an investigation and trust me when I suggest that there is plenty to investigate in Irvine. Can't speak for why Moxley doesn't like Agran, but for myself, it is because "No man should be above the law."
